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.

Vineyard
Ala Blanca means white wing in Italian. "Here come the white wings" the children
would cry as they watched the seagulls fly over the vineyard. Vermentino is the main
white grape cultivated in Sardinia. It is presumed to have Spanish origins, but has
found its ideal setting in the north of Sardinia, where it can fully express its distinctive
characteristics. The climate is Mediterranean, with frequent north westerly winds, which
help to reduce disease pressure in the vineyard. The vineyard is located on gentle
slopes between Alghero and Sassari, where the Guyot trained vines are planted on
American rootstocks at a density of 4,500 vines per hectare. The vineyard is made up of
two main soil types: sandy soils are located close to the sea, which are poor in
nutrients, but offer good water retention. The grapes here ripen perfectly and offer a
distinctive saline note to the wine. The other is a limestone soil mixed with calcareous
stone, which is richer and produces elegant and structured wines.
Winemaking
The grapes underwent short pre-fermentation maceration. Fermentation took place at
low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of fruit and lasted 15
days. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks for three months on its fine lees, with
gentle lees stirring taking place every 10 days. This wine did not undergo malolactic
conversion, retaining the natural, crisp style.
Tasting Note
A full flavoured wine, offering elegant aromas of ripe tropical fruits, citrus zest and subtle
herbal nuances. Dry, with a full texture on the palate through to an enticing hint of
almond on the finish.
