Costador - Joan Franquet - Metamorphika Sumoll Negre 100 % Amforà - 2017 - DO Conca de Barberà
100% Sumoll Negre
From 60 year old vines planted on 1 hectare of stony clay soils. Though this plot has been worked organically for a long time, this plot is under organic and biodynamic conversion. The grapes are hand-harvested in mid-October, intensively sorted and de-stemmed. Maceration and spontaneous fermentation lasts for eight weeks (minimum) in clay amphora, with indigenous yeasts, under temperature control. No pumping over occurs, the cap is only distrubed by hand once a day until fermentation is completed wherein the amphora is topped off, and then subject to battonage once a week with inert gas and then closed with a stainless steel top. The wine spends seven months on lees. Aging takes place in the same amphora for 9 months. Unfiltered.
