Can Sumoi - Sumoll Garnatxa 2021


Can Sumoi is the new collaboration between Pepe Raventós and childhood friend Francesc Escala: The 400-hectare estate of Can Sumoi sits at six hundred meters of altitude in the Serra de l’Home range in the Penedès. Its 350-year-old farmhouse and stone walls accommodate thirty hectares of old Montonega, Xarel-lo and Sumoll vines; stands of oak and white pine shade the rest of the surface.

The vines are cultivated on limestone soils in certified-organic fashion and the resulting wines are produced without additives, stabilization or filtration (although no sulfur is added, trace amounts remain in the wines as natural fermentation by-product). They show low alcohol and refreshingly brisk acidity.

Can Sumoi Sumoll-Garnatxa 2019 is a juicy red wine with an intense nose of wild fruits and Mediterranean forest herbs. On the palate it is fine, light and elegant. A wine with a good amount of fruit on the palate, a long finish and a present acidity that will leave you wanting more.
