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 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.
Manual harvesting, skins and light crushing. Alcoholic fermentation with skins and autochthonous yeasts in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for 12 months, where it is naturally refined and stabilized. Not filtered.
