Tinto Figuero’s Twelve Months In Barrel has a dark red color with blue highlights that signifies good ripeness. The initial aromas are clean and brilliant, with fully-ripened red fruit and well-matured red berries. It is enhanced by sweet touches of oak and a little balsamic eucalyptus and licorice at the end. The taste is balanced and full-flavored, with sweet, round tannins married to light acidity, giving a fresh, harmonic tone to the palate. There is a hint of mint and minerals on the finish, which is also silky and elegant.
Tinto Figuero is the great dream of Jose Maria Garcia and Milagros Figuero, a vine-growing couple who have
devoted their entire lives to looking after their “majuelos,” with the aim of producing “top quality” grapes.
They are the proud heirs to a culture that has come down to them through several generations.
What make us different is our 131acres of vineyards. 62 acres of which are older than 60 years, from which we
pick the high quality grapes that make our wines so prestigious around the world.
The winery boasts of state-of- the-art technology and has the best resources to produce great wines including
gravity flow, automatic topping and computer-controlled fermentation. The barrels are made from the best
American and French oak, toasted by renowned master coopers and renewed every three years. These barrels are
instrumental in endowing Tinto Figuero wines with their unmistakable bouquet.
