DO Jumilla is located on a high plain in the eastern region of Spain, acting as a transition zone between the Mediterranean coastal area and the high central plateau of Castile-La Mancha. The vineyards of Jumilla are spread over the municipality of Jumilla, in Murcia, and six counties in the southeast of the province of Albacete: Ontur, Tobarra, Albatana, Hellin, Montealegre and Fuente Alamo. The main variety of the area is the Monastrell grape variety, a noble and robust variety which produces small bunches of small dark-coloured grapes very rich in sugars and other noble components.
Bodegas Alceño has known how to firmly rely on the Monastrell grapes, harvested at their optimum ripeness, looking for less volume and degrees, and more quality. Therefore, in a record time, their wines have managed to enjoy a prestigious position. With this winemaking renovation, apart from being a family tradition winery since 1870 and the first one to market wines in Jumilla, Bodegas Alceño has been able to join the path to modernity, producing balanced and very expressive wines, fruit, with lively tannins and with a great structure.
