|Garnacha tintorera from 80 years old, inoculated sticks|
|Full, ripe and soft thanks to luxurious wood maturation|
|The ideal wine with grilled meat or rich stews|
Full red in color with a light brown shade. Powerful aroma with ripe notes, jammed fruit, coconut and vanilla. The full, soft taste lasts for a long time and ends with mild tannin and an aromatic aftertaste.
The talented Juan Pablo Cantos, who previously worked at the famous Vega Sicilia, was given a free hand to create top quality from the oldest and non-irrigated vineyards of Bodegas Piqueras. Juan Pablo selected the highly calcareous plot 'Los Losares'.
The 80-year-old, unleashed grape vines garnacha tintorera are still standing here on the original rootstocks (pie franco). Due to the high location, the grapes ripen more slowly and develop more finesse and complexity. Juan Pablo therefore only picked the grapes in mid-October, naturally by hand. After the two fermentations, the wine matured in luxurious casks of French Allier oak for 14 months.
Making such top quality is an important development for Almansa. Most producers here make wines of simple quality and therefore miss the connection with lovers of beautiful Rioja and Ribera del Duero. That does not alter the fact that the almost unknown Almansa does have the potential for beautiful wines. The (un) fame plays a crucial role in the price of a bottle of wine. The true enthusiast who looks beyond the famous names on the label benefits from this. Buying such a quality elsewhere costs at least twice as much.
The Los Losares is dark colored and has a beautiful aroma of ripe black fruit and luxurious oak. The full, ripe and soft taste sets full and has enough tension to combine well with grilled meat or rich stews. Due to the velvety soft taste, this Almansa is also fantastic outside the meal.
