Producer Note
The Parpinello family has run this 35 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.
Vintage
Following three years of low yields, the 2020 harvest reached almost ‘normal’ levels in
terms of quantity, although the yield was still 10 to 15% below the average. However,
the grapes produced were healthy and of very good quality, delivering wines with
slightly lower alcohol levels and excellent aromatic characters.
Vineyard
Cannonau is the most important and exclusive red wine grape native to Sardinia, as 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
