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.
100% Xarel-lo fermented with indigenous yeasts in tank. Twice-weekly batonnage for a further 3 months in tank before bottling. No additives; unfined and unfiltered.
Clean, fresh and electric, the Can Sumoi Xarel.lo speaks to the wild landscape from which it is grown with aromas of herbs such as fennel and thyme. The fruit flavors teeter on underripe to just perfect apples with clean acidity and a hint of salinity.
