    A powerhouse blend of 50% Summol, 25% Grenache, 25% Carignan, Durona is the name of the area at the L’Avellá property of Mont Rubí where Sumoll is cultivated. Fermented on the skins aged 12 months in oak. The colour is an intense Tyrian purple with a complex nose of wild fruits and warm spices underscored by a subtle mineral nuance. The palate follows with a delicious combination of figs, balsamic, wild herbs, and black pepper that is decidedly Mediterranean in style, accented slightly by a delicate use of oak. A wine to drink while wearing a cozy sweater.
