Description

Gran Marius Reserva Seleccion is the top wine in the Marius range, a reserva style blend of four diffent grape varieties. Bodegas Piqueras was founded in 1915 by Mario Bonete and the company was the driving force behind the creation of the DO Almansa. Marion was later followed by his sons Juan Pablo Bonete, who had successfully studied oenology, and Angel. Piqueras owns 190 hectares of its own vineyards and has contracts for another 500 hectares from growers. The company remains family owned, quality has steadily increased and Bodegas Piqueras move to a new, modern, purpose built winery in 2002. Today Bodegas Piqueras prove that quality wines can be made in this less-than-trendy appellation. DO Almansa is located some 100kms inland from Valencia and Alicante. The calcareous soils and cold winters with hot summers make it ideal for the cultivation of Tempranillo (known as Cencibel in Almansa), Monastrell, Syrah and Garnacha Tintorera producing grapes with good concentration and deep colour. Gran Marius Reserva Seleccion is made from hand harvested grapes from low-yielding vineyards and is a blend of 25% Tempranillo, 25% Monastrell, 25% Garnacha Tintorera and 25% Syrah. The wine is aged for 12 months in 50% French Allier and 50% American oak barrels and for 18 months in the bottle prior to release.
