Sommos Premium is a wood-aged red wine made by Bodega Sommos with the Tempranillo, Merlot and Syrah varieties in the D.O. Somontano, in Aragon (Spain).
With facilities considered “One of the Architectural Wonders of the Winemaking World”, Bodega Sommos is one today’s most avant-garde projects. Located in the heart of the D.O. Somontano, in the town of Barbastro, the building has playful geometric steel and glass shapes integrated into the environment and technology that is designed to optimise the entire production process.
In the vineyard, Sommos Premium starts life in a climate and area that offers variety and quality. The vines are cultivated using traditional agriculture with a planting density of 4,115 vines / Ha. The harvest takes place mechanically and at night at the optimum point of ripeness.
Once the grapes have passed over the selection table, they macerate cold for 3 days. Each variety used to make Sommos Premium then ferments separately in temperature-controlled French oak vats. Finally, the wine is aged on its own lees, in a particular selection of new French oak barrels for 14 months.
Sommos Premium is the top wine from one of the most innovative wineries in the D.O. Somontano. State-of-the-art technology to extract the best of a climate and a land alongside exceptional winemaking skill.
Sommos Premium is a mature red wine with complex aromas of ripe red and black fruit, notes of dried herbs and hints of wood. On the palate it is powerful, oily and enveloping. A wine with sweet tannins, well-balanced acidity and a persistent finish with hints of fruit and toast.
