    A re-encounter with the varietal origins of Penedès, the land that welcomed Jean Leon and gave birth to Sumoll, an ancestral red grape. The old bush vines were planted in 1975 at 250 meters. This exclusive, hand-harvested wine is a limited edition of only 2,182 bottles.

    Dark cherry red with medium depth of color. Very fresh on the nose, with red fruit and balsamic notes. An elegant, round palate that strikes a balance between soft, sweet tannins and lively acidity. Complex and persistent.
