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: Can Sumoi Xarel-lo has notes of aromatic Mediterranean plants, aniseed flavor, fruits and white flowers.

    Fresh citrus fruits, pungent herbs and a floral nuance on the mineral-accented nose. Taut and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy Meyer lemon and bitter pear skin flavors that flesh out with air. Finishes on a repeating floral note, with very good persistence and lingering fennel and citrus pith notes.
