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
2016 saw a warm, dry summer, which promoted which had a positive effect on the
growth cycle. Rainfall in the first week of September helped to revive the vines after
the dry summer and was especially useful to late-maturing vines such as Cannonau.
Leading up the harvest the weather alternated between sunny and cooler days,
allowing the vines to ripen with good levels of aromatic and polyphenolic maturity.
Vineyard
Cannonau is the most important and exclusive red wine grape native to Sardinia. It
is thought to be the oldest variety in the Mediterranean. The vineyard is located on a
gentle slope between Alghero and Sassari. It sits atop a mixture of geological
formations such as calcareous marne, conglomerate and sandstone. The vineyard is
planted with a high density of vines. The newest innovations are implemented in the
cultivation of the vineyard, while respecting the traditions and ecosystem of the
geographical location. Pruning and harvesting take place manually. The meticulous
selection of grape clusters ensures optimum quality.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand harvested from a selection of the best bunches in the
vineyard. Vinification took place with selected yeast in stainless steel tanks at
controlled temperatures of between 20 to 22°C. The wine was then underwent
maceration for 10 days to extract the desired level of flavours, colour and aromatics,
before being bottle aged.
Tasting Note
A deep, rich red colour, this Cannonau shows lashings of mature red fruits combined
with delicate hints of spice on the nose. The dry and pleasantly flavoured palate is
elegant, yet full bodied in style.
