Description

From 70-year-old vines, Figuero Noble is deep cherry in colour with a fine garnet rim. Wonderfully intense and complex on the nose, with aromas of raspberry, currants and plum, as well as liquorice, black pepper and cinnamon. There is also something floral here, with balsamic and roasted coffee beans on the finish. The palate is powerful and dense with great tannic structure and brilliant acidity – the perfect combination for ageing. Elegant and balanced, this is an outstanding wine that will keep for many years to come.

Tinto Figuero was born from a thousand vines, which were received by José María García and Milagros Figuero in the year of their wedding, 1961. The Figuero philosophy is based on utmost respect and minimal intervention in the winemaking process. Therefore, nature is allowed to follow its course at every stage, accompanying the wines every step of the way. Winemakers Jean-François Hébrard and Óscar Rodríguez form an essential partnership to bring together the two philosophies of “know-how” and “laissez-faire” as Figuero’s way of understanding viticulture and oenology. In keeping with the philosophy, the old vines, spread between more than 50 growing areas, are vinified according to their classification in small tanks. In this way the personality of each area can be maintained and wines of three classifications are produced: Vino de Pueblo (village wines), Vino de Paraje (wines of the same viticultural area) and Vino de Parcela (single-plot wines). The Figuero vineyards are situated at 800m above sea level and are affected by the Mediterranean climate and continental influences.

Food matches: Serve with steak, venison and other hearty dishes, as well as hard cheese.
