Product Description

The top-shelf Spanish red wine of bodega Mas d’en Gil, Clos Fontà expresses Priorat classicism at its best.

A blend of Grenache and Carignan, it is produced from the oldest vines of the winery, planted in llicorella (slate) soils between 1931 and 1970.

The grapes were harvested by hand, meticulously selected and separately vinified. First, they were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature.

After that, Clos Fontà 2017 was transferred into French oak barrels of different sizes, where it was aged for 16 months. Finally, it was aged for a further 36 months before it was launched onto the market.

Decant this Priorat red wine 40 minutes before drinking at the very least. Bear in mind, though, that a longer decanting period will greatly enhance your drinking experience.

Pair this Reserva red wine with foie, casseroles and game dishes.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Clos Fontà is medium purple with a cherry rim.


This blend of old-vines Grenache and Carignan shows the understated elegance than one finds in most of the world's great wines. Pristine aromas of red fruit, with a stroke of Mediterranean underbrush, some subtle floral nuances and a smoky note. Oaky aromas are subdued, and there is a very deep, though subtle mineral background. 


Rich and textured, this wine from Mas d'en Gil is a distillation of the Priorat terroir. Effortless and confident, with succulent ripe fruit, hints of flowers and aromatic herbs, some ripe tannins, and a deep mineral core. Crisp acidity, and very long finish with some mineral and earthy remembrances.

Our personal opinion

If you are a lover of, say, great Brunello wines, you should definitely try Clos Fontà 2017.

Medium-bodied, precise, and gently mineral. Definitely not your usual Priorat mineral H-bomb. Keeps evolving in a very pleasant manner.
