Wine & Spirits Review Rated 93 San Clodio is the name of the Cistercian monastery that farmed vines in Gomariz, the Ribeiro del Avia hamlet where filmmaker Jose Luis Cuerda established Amodino. It took him a number of years to acquire 14.8 acres of terraced vineyards planted to the region's traditional varieties-mainly treixadura, along with godello, albarino, torrontes and loureiro. This blend has the complexity, depth and minerality of an old-vine wine (Cuerda's vines average 80 years old). The nectarine-like fruit flavor is refreshing and tight-it has the peppery spark of fresh-pressed olive oil or the crisp green bite of parsley. The wine is authentically Gallego, summer in a bottle to serve with seared sea scallops.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Rated 90 Light yellow. Exotic aromas of orange zest, floral honey, chamomile and minerals, plus a whiff of pungent herbs. Fleshy and smooth, offering gently sweet citrus and orchard fruit flavors and good mineral cut. Suavely blends energy and richness, and finishes with very good lift and precision.
Wine Tasting Notes Golden yellow, medium intensity. Fruity and complex, it manifests the property of the Treixadura grapes it is made from. It should evolve favorably in its first few years of life. On the tongue it presents as dry yet smooth, full, glycycl, abundant and glutinous with a light bitter finish and a hint of light vegetable flavor.
