The red grape variety originates from Spain. Synonyms are Sumoi, Sumoll Negro, Sumoll Tinto, Sunier, Veriariego Negra, Vigiriega, Vigiriega Negra, Vigiriego Negro, Vijariego Negro and Vijiriego Negro. It was first mentioned under Sumoll in Catalonia in 1797. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2018, it originates from a presumably natural cross between Hebén x unknown partner. Nothing is known about a possible genetic relationship to the white variety Sumoll Blanco. Sumoll was a crossing partner of the new varieties Cienna, Rubienne and Tyrian. The late-maturing, high-yielding vine produces fresh, acidic red wines with fruity aromas that are mainly used for blending. It is cultivated in the DO areas of Alella, Catalunya, Conca de Barberà, Penedès, Pla de Bages and Terra Alta in the Catalonia region. In 2016, 16 hectares of vines were designated (Kym Anderson statistics).
