La Caputxeta Sumoi 2019
This Sumoi is made from extremely rare Sixty-year-old vines and fermented in a ceramic old fashion underground ‘cup’ and left on skins for 8 months, the first Sumoi made this way in the world. 10% of the wine was made under carbonic maceration.
Aromatically, bright red fruits, with an underlying savoury edge. The palate has a delicious mid weight texture but finishes crisp and long from the fine tannins developed from the way the wine is made. These rustic tannins protect the grapes from oxidation and it becomes the oxygen scavenger, allowing the long macerations, just like centuries ago. Drink chilled with Carpaccio and Queso
No fining or filtration. Spontaneous wild fermentation. Contains no added sulphites.
