Producer Note
The Parpinello family have run this 30 hectare estate and winery with dedication and
passion for three generations. Giampaolo Parpinello and his son Paolo strive to reflect
the Sardinian terroir and reveal the typicity of the wines. The vineyard is situated on a
gentle slope between Alghero and Sassari in the North West of the island. In order to
reflect this typicity, modern winemaking technology is successfully combined with
traditional farming methods, resulting in high quality wines with intense aromas and
flavours, evocative of the terroir from which they originate.
Vintage
2015 was a year characterised by low rainfall and a high average temperature,
therefore supplemental irrigation was required in order for the grapes to achieve full
maturity. The light wind which distinguishes the Cagnulari vineyard ensured the
grapes were in good condition at harvest.
Vineyard
The Isola dei Nuraghi IGT appellation covers the entire Sardegna administrative
region. The Nuraghi are ancient megalithic edifices found in Sardinia, which were
developed during the Nuragic Age between 1900 and 730 BC. They have come to
be symbolic of Sardinia and its distinctive culture. The vineyard is located on gentle
slopes between Alghero and Sassari, where the vines are planted to a high density
in a mixture of geological formations such as calcareous marne, conglomerate and
sandstone. The vineyard is cultivated respecting tradition and the ecosystem of the
geographical location.
Winemaking
Cagnulari is the name of the red grape variety whose origins can be traced back to
Spain, yet it is found predominantly in the North West of Sardinia, largely due to the
Aragonese occupation of the area in the 1600s. The wine was carefully crafted, with
the grapes being manually harvested and the clusters, carefully selected. The
grapes were vinified with a maceration lasting for 10 to12 days at controlled
temperatures of 22°C.
Tasting Note
A deep, intense Cagnulari with delicate aromas of wild flowers backed by
concentrated, ripe red fruits and a touch of spice. Dry and elegantly structured with
a smooth finish.
Serving Suggestion
Perfect with traditional Sardinian cuisine such as starters of cured meats, roasted red
meats or cheese.
