2020 Vintage Notes: 2020 is an almost tragic vintage due to the enormous production losses due to mildew in the whole Penedès region. However, the high altitude of Can Sumoi, where the winds are blowing and the temperatures are low, the mildew has gone unnoticed.

Location Notes: Located in Massís del Montmell at 600 meters above sea level, Can Sumoi has been an agricultural farm since 1645. Pepe Raventós and Francesc Escala have purchased this estate with the desire to produce wines that reflect the special terroir. All of the Can Sumoi wines are produced with ancestral traditions and without any type of additive. These are high altitude natural wines.

Tasting Notes: Aromatic and voluminous, it has the scent of white flowers, citrus, and apricot notes; and a fresh and delicate mouth.

Reviews

  • Vinous
    Rating: 91 (6/3/2021)

    Diaphanous orange-pink. Vibrant red berry, citrus fruit and floral scents, plus hints of chalky minerals and fennel. Dry and racy in the mouth, offering lively strawberry, cherry and tangerine flavors that show a weightless quality. Closes very long and silky, with resonating florality and a hint of spiciness.
