07 Mar Piqueras Gold Label and Castillo de Almansa Roble receive the gold in Mundus Vini 2019
At Bodegas Piqueras we have started the year stepping hard. In the last month of February 2019, the spring tasting was held at the Mundus Vini contest where our Piqueras Gold Label and our Castillo de Almansa Roble each proudly received the gold medal.
The international contest Mundus Vini is considered one of the most important wine competitions in the world and is celebrated twice each year. In the last Spring tasting, more than 250 exper
t tasters met to evaluate 7,220 wines from more than 50 countries in 6 days.
Of the 93 gold medals distributed in this edition, two of our wines stood out. The first gold was for Piqueras Gold Label, a soft and fruity red wine made with Monastrell grapes (70%), Garnacha (20%) and Syrah (10%). Our second gold was Castillo Almansa Roble distinguished as red wine with aromas of ripe berries and with a subtle touch of oak.
The overall results of the contest place Spain in second position with a total of 623 medals, ahead of France, but behind Italy. Year after year, this event consolidates the presence of Bodegas Piqueras at international markets.
