Review

Clío is not just one of Jumilla's greatest wines, its arrival on the market meant a real before and after for Murcia's wines. It's a concentrated and profound wine made primarily from Monastrell grapes grown in century-old vineyards, with the addition of a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon.

The grapes, harvested caringly and placed in small crates, are treated in the winery too with consummate care in order to deliver in due course a dense wine that's an intense Picota cherry colour. It releases aromas of ripe black fruit, almost like jam, to which the oak adds notes of toasted coffee and cocoa, followed on next by hints of liquorice and spices. On the palate, it's flavoursome and robust, having plenty of structure and with sweet, concentrated and luscious tannins. It has a long, seductive finish, with touches of spicy jam. A powerful wine that suits decanting and one which will pair up superbly with fine meats and game dishes.

Wuchtbrumme

Wow, wer schweren Wein liebt, kommt am Clio nicht vorbei. Was für eine Wuchtbrumme. Danach noch einen "drauf zu setzen" wird wirklich schwer. Man merkt die Handschrift der großen Weinmacher!!!

Ich liebe Monastrell

Ein muss für Liebhaber der fruchtigen , kräftigen Weine! Dieser Assemblage überzeugt bereits in der Nase durch Noten von Beeren. Ein toller Begleiter vorallem im Herbst / Winter

Located in the Aragona Valley, just outside the town of Jumilla, the winery lies on stony, limestone soils on a sandy base at around 800 metres above sea level. The vines, dispersed among small parcels mostly situated close to the winery, grow facing north. The...
