Papet Del Mas 100% Sumoll 2014

 

The badabadoc or "clueless" sloth seems to just enjoy life and all it brings. Not a care goes into things outside of his control. Eating, drinking, sleeping and loving. Not an ounce of thought goes into the jungle around him and all the while with a seemingly permanent smile. 

Sumoll is in a category all its own. This grape is nearly black in skin color and has been used for wine long enough to have Roman heritage. Young wine from the Sumoll grape has a slight roughness that disappears with aging. Its production is low, and treatment for achieving quality wines requires high skills in wine production. Its culture is rare, with less than one hundred hectares planted (247 acres). But for those looking for a sip of history and a fantastic pairing with wild game, this is it!
