José María García and Milagros Figuero are a vine-growing couple who have devoted their entire lives to looking after their “majuelos,” or young vines. They are proud heirs to a culture that has been handed down through several generations. After many years of concentrating exclusively on cultivating their vines with the aim of producing top flight grapes, the couple decided to embark on a project that they knew would take a great deal of tenacity and expertise – to make their own wines. The wines of García Figuero are all 100% Tempranillo – Spain’s signature red grape, the backbone of the wines from the Ribera del Duero and the only grape variety planted on the Estate.
Figuero 12 has an intense cherry-red colour and blueish highlights. Clean, bright and extremely well presented. Intense aromas of red fruits and spices such as vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and pink peppercorn. It is enhanced by sweet touches of oak, tobacco and coffee. The taste is balanced and full-flavoured, with sweet, round tannins married to light acidity, giving a fresh, harmonic tone to the palate. A long finish, which is also silky and elegant.
