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.
Cherry-red colour and violet highlights that signifies good ripeness. Clean, bright and extremely well presented. Intense, black berries and redcurrant, with elegant notes of liquorice and black pepper all well integrated with the oak (four months in barrel). The palate is powerful and long showing a good structure, balanced acidity and rounded, sweet tannins. Lingering to the finish.
