Can Sumoi Ancestral Montònega is a sparkling wine made from 100% Montònega (Parellada). This variety gives the wine a fun, fresh and intense character on the nose, highlighting notes of white fruit, a floral touch and rosemary.
The location of the estate at an altitude of 600 metres gives concentration and roundness to the wines. The estate is planted exclusively with native varieties, growing on soils of the Montmell formation, rich in marine fossils and with an average age of 50 years. Can Sumoi is firmly committed to the recovery of native varieties such as Parellada, Macabeu, Sumoll, Garnatxa and Xarel-lo.
As for viticulture, it is based on respect for the environment, natural and biodynamic winemaking. The Can Sumoi vineyards are cultivated 100% organically and biodynamically. Winemaking at Can Sumoi focuses on the production of natural high altitude wines with as little intervention as possible. The Ancestral or Pet Nat method is characterised by an alcoholic fermentation that begins in stainless steel tanks and ends in the bottle, without adding yeast or sugar. A minimum intervention protocol is followed , with no oenological additives or sulphates.
Can Sumoi Ancestral Montònega stands out as a sparkling wine with a fresh and intense flavour. The wine has an elegant straw-yellow colour, with fine and scarce bubbles that rise delicately, providing a sensation of subtlety and distinction. On the nose, this wine displays a range of aromas dominated by citrus notes, evoking fresh lemons and oranges, complemented by floral nuances reminiscent of white flowers in the middle of spring. These notes intertwine harmoniously with aromas of white fruit, such as pear and apple, and are enriched with surprising hints of cheese and yeast, adding complexity and depth. On the palate, it surprises with a medium-high acidity that refreshes the palate, while its mineral and slightly saline character gives it a persistent and balanced finish, inviting a second sip.
