Winemaking Notes: Sumoll is an indigenous grape of the region, and Manel Avinyo has a knack for showing it’s more elegant, softer side. The Sumoll underwent whole cluster skin maceration for about 15 days. Then the grapes were pressed into used oak foudres and clay amphorae where it aged for about 1 year. Then everything was blended and aged for another year in stainless steel. The Litrona Sumoll was bottled unfiltered without sulfites.
About the Label: The old mastic trees, that give their name (Lentiscus) to the property, speak volumes of the estate's history. Located in the Parc Natural del Garraf, nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the Garraf Mountains south of Barcelona, Manel Avinyo and his family have been farming this land since 1939.
