"From 45-60 year old organically-farmed vines - this inky, powerful, full-bodied red is hard to believe for the price. A real find!" Steve Bennett, Master of Wine, Importer

Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) is a ‘teinturier’ grape variety with red flesh as well as dark skins. It is sought out by wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs for its amazing colour intensity and strong cherry, cassis, dark chocolate and black pepper characters backed up by a lush texture. This excellent example is juicy and plush with polished tannins.

Bodegas Piqueras was founded in 1915 by Mario Bonete, one of the driving forces behind the creation of Almansa DO. in south-east Spain (100 kilometres inland from Valencia.) Today, Mario's sons look after the estate, with the goal of producing eminent wines at fantastic prices. The estate is situated at 700-800 metres altitude with an extreme continental climate, low rainfall and limestone-rich soils which are managed using organic farming methods… perfect conditions for  low yielding, slow ripening vines which produce rich, ripe, bold red wines of excellent concentration and  quality.

Food Pairing: Enjoy this juicy red on its own or with roasted or grilled red meat and cheese dishes.
