Characteristics of Tinto Figuero Viñas Viejas

Tinto Figuero Viñas Viejas is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero region produced by the Figuero winery. The wine is produced using only Tempranillo grapes.

The grapes used to make this wine come from vineyards that are over 50 years old from various plots owned by the winery near the locality of La Horra, and are situated between 400-800 metres above sea level.

The harvest is carried out manually, and are transported immediately to the winery with the upmost care in small baskets of 12kg capacity. This is to ensure that the grape does not grape before arrival, and that it maintains it's characteristics.

On arrival, the grapes undergo cold maceration at a temperature of 12 degrees, which lasts for 2 days with an alcholic temperature at a controlled temperature at 29 degrees. During this phase 2 manuel pumpings are gone. Finally, the wine is macerated for 2 weeks and undergoes a final malolactic fermentation.

Viñas Viejas then ages for 15 months in new French oak barrels and then clarified with egg white. After bottling, the wine then rests for another 6 months before being marketed.

The Figuero winery is situated in the province of Burgos where it was founded in 2001. The company is led by the Figuero's, a married couple, who rely on the invaluable support of their 3 children.

Tasting notes Tinto Figuero Viñas Viejas

After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
Tinto Figuero Viñas Viejas 2015 is a mature, intense and elegant red wine. This magnificent vintage stands out for its balance between freshness and maturity. On the nose, it shows a good fruity character without leaving aside the toasted notes of its ageing. In the mouth, it shows good balance between volume, liveliness and freshness.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their ageing.
