Characteristics of Inicis Sumoll

Inicis Sumoll is a red wine made by Caves Bohigas in Òdena (Barcelona), D.O. Catalunya.

Caves Bohigas is a family winery located on the Can Macià estate, in the municipality of Òdena. This estate has more than 200 hectares of forests, cereal fields and vineyards (over 35 hectares). The family also has 54 hectares of vineyards located in the area of ​​Gelida, Penedés, an excellent location for the production of quiet wines and well adapted for red varieties.

The climate in the area is continental-Mediterranean, with highly fluctuating temperatures between day and night and very low rainfall. The soils are basically clay-calcareous. Caves Bohigas cultivates its vineyards under the influence of the Anoia River, respecting the land and seeking the maximum expression from the varieties that have adapted best. Resulting in low yields and high acidity, ideal for making high quality cava base wines.

Inicis Sumoll is a red wine made with centenarian Sumoll vines.

The grapes are harvested manually and placed in 15-kg boxes. Once in the cellar, the grapes are cooled to 4 degrees and spend the night in a cold room. Once destemmed, they are placed in covered 250 litre earthenware jars, where they ferment with indigenous yeasts. A manual pigeage is performed 3 times a day for the first 7 days. The de-vatting is manual, and without pressing the must is transferred into 380 litre earthenware jars where it will undergo malolactic fermentation and be aged for 8 months.

Designation of Origin D.O. Catalunya

For many Catalan winemakers, the DO Catalunya is one of their best weapons for marketing their wines to the international market, since the image of their wine is significantly enhanced by a ‘Denominación de Origen’, which can certify a wines origin and quality. One of the initial positive effects is the fact that great wines are associated with a larger geographic area within the peninsula, in the same way as the Bordeaux region in France.  For many producers, the DO Catalunya is a clear sign of the regions commitment towards a model of quality. This is especially beneficial for Catalan wines that previously did not come under another ‘Denominación de Origen’.
