    The 2018 Ancestral Sumoll is a pale ancestral sparkling from Sumoll grapes. The second vintage, it had a very light extraction, then was bottled in the middle of fermentation and finished fermenting in bottle until the end, finishing dry. There is no addition of any oenological products—no added sulfur and with a pH below three. It has an expressive nose with notes of rose petals and fennel, very good freshness and a dry finish. It's clean, elegant and refreshing and feels very tasty, almost salty. They disgorged the bottles to remove the lees.
