Tasting note Piqueras Los Losares
Full red in color with a light brown nuance. Powerful aroma with ripe notes, jammy fruit, coconut and vanilla. The full, soft taste lasts for a long time and ends with mild tannins and an aromatic aftertaste.
The talented Juan Pablo Cantos, who previously worked at the famous Vega Sicilia, was given free rein to make top quality from the oldest and unirrigated vineyards of Bodegas Piqueras. Juan Pablo selected the strongly calcareous plot 'Los Losares'.
The 80-year-old garnacha tintorera vines are still standing here on the original rootstocks (pie franco). Due to the high altitude, the grapes ripen more slowly and develop more finesse and complexity. Juan Pablo did not pick the grapes until mid-October, of course by hand. After the two fermentations, the wine matured for 14 months in luxurious French Allier oak casks.
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 virtually unknown Almansa does have the potential for beautiful wines. The (un)familiarity plays a crucial role in the price of a bottle of wine. The true enthusiast who looks beyond the well-known names on the label benefits from this. Buying such 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 is 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 of the meal.
