Appellation: Vi.
Cuvée: Maçaners.
Colour: Red.
Grapes: Sumoll.
About: Sumoll is Catalonia’s Poulsard or Pinot Noir, a quite delicate but intense variety that’s more about acidity and perfume than fruit. In the hands of a careful producer, the results are usually very lovely. Toni’s wine is as concentrated as it gets, with fabulous finesse. It comes from an entirely different terroir, high altitude. But only around 300 bottles are produced.

Vintage Notes 2017
Frost hit the vineyard so there was even less than normal, so the blend is made up with some Roig Boig Sumoll and a few percent of other grapes which gives it even greater finesse.
