The last 2018, the greatest protagonist for Bodegas Piqueras was the wine Castillo de Almansa Selección 2013. This wine was awarded with a gold in the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, a gold for the French contest Citadelles du vin and a bronze granted by the competition of wines Decanter 2018.
Castillo de Almansa Selección 2013 is a dark and intense ruby color wine with a fruity flavor that reminds of wild fruits, raisins and roasted peppers. Its elegance, good structure and balanced acidity allow to taste it with a silky sensation in the mouth.
This wine has been recognized by 3 prestigious international wine competitions such as the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles which, with more than 20 years of experience, has main ambition and purpose to recognize and differentiate quality wines in all price ranges internationally.
The second gold was awarded by the Citadelles du vin contest, held in Hong Kong at the end of May. This contest delights the winner with a great reputation as it follows the demands of large institutions such as the OIV or the Vinofed.
Finally, the bronze was awarded by the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018, one of the most prestigious wine competitions, with a jury composed of the leading experts in their fields, including Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers from all around the world.
In Bodegas Piqueras we received these recognitions of our wine and works with satisfaction since such competitions are submitted to a rigorous evaluation and of exquisite quality.
