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. Vineyard
At the turn of the 11th century a few Spanish monks planted the Monica grape variety in the area between Sassari and Alghero. Under the reign of the Aragonese, it was the Camaldolesi who promoted the wine all over the rest of the island with such a degree of success, that today it is amongst the most popular red grape varieties in Sardinia. The vines are pruned and harvested manually, with the careful selection of grape clusters at harvest time. The vineyard soils are made up of calcareous marne, conglomerate and sandstone. Winemaking
Traditional vinification took place with a 10 to 12 day maceration period to extract the maximum colour, flavour compunds and fine tannins. Tasting Note
Deep red in colour, with notes of wild flowers, mature red fruits and a hint of spice through to a smooth and elegant palate. Serving Suggestion
Delicious with canapés and cheeses. Excellent with salami, it also complements the typically rich flavours of Sardinian meat dishes to perfection
