THE WINE MAKER NOTES : Tempranillo grapes used in this wine come from a selection of the best cluster from Torrosillo vineyard older than 75 years with loamy clay with marls soil. Yield 1Kg/bush vine. Elevation 840 meters. After being hand-harvested and undergoing cluster selection in the vineyards, the grapes are destemmed and go through gravity-controlled tank of 7,500 L, with two days of cold-skin maceration prior to fermentation. An additional two months of maturation follow, with malolactic fermentation in barrels taking place. Egg white clarification. The wine is aged for a maximum of twenty-one months in new French barrels. It is then aged an additional two years in bottle before leaving the cellar.

TASTING NOTES : Appearance: Deep cherry-red colour with beautiful bright red hues and long legs. Nose: Excellent complexity starting with blackberries and blueberries, nice liquorice, cinnamon, toasted coffee, eucalyptus, minerals, leather aromas and continuing with spice as black pepper and nutmeg. All of them in perfect harmony. Taste: Dense, rich, beautiful acidity and voluptuous on the bouquet. As it names suggests, the nobility of this wine is experienced from the very first sip to the long, lingering, and velvety finish. Grape Variety: 100 % TEMPRANILLO / TINTO FINO. Single plot: Torrosillo 76 years old owned by García Figuero family, yield 1 Kg/bush vine. 

ABOUT THE WINERY : José Maria Garcia and Milagros Figuero are a married couple who have been the custodians of their ancestors’ vineyards for decades, their grapes being sold to some of the top wine producers in Ribera del Duero, Spain. The couple farms 131 acres of Tempranillo of which 62 acres are old bush vines that are over 60 years old. They use clones that come from cuttings of a pre-phylloxera Tempranillo that arrived in their town, La Horra, in 1908. Despite these bush vines giving low yields and requiring a significant amount of man hours to maintain their health and longevity, the Garcia Figuero family was committed to protecting these old vines when much of the rest of the world was pulling such uneconomical vines out. It is no wonder that iconic producers such as Vega Sicilia bought their grapes to use into their wines.
