Vermentino 'Ala Blanca' 2022, Poderi Parpinello

Sold Out
Unit Price

Vermentino can be a great substitute for Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. It's a lighter, dry style of white wine that is great on its own or with a meal. In Italy, most Vermentino comes from either the Tuscan coast, or the island of Sardinia, smack in the middle of the Mediterranean. This Vermentino is the latter, and even more distinctly, it comes from the North-Western side of the island.

The fruit flavors of this wine are decidedly green, both stone fruit and melon. In fact, the non-fruit notes are also green, with an herbal undertone begging for pesto. And underneath all of that, there is a streak of granite that makes you want to come back for another sip over and over again.

About the Winery

Located in Janna de Mare, due north of Alghero and west of the town of Sassari in the northwest of Sardinia, is Poderi Parpinello. The hillside terrain that surrounds contains densely planted vineyards & olive groves, around 30 hectares of which are farmed by Gianpaolo Parpinello and his son Paolo. Indigenous varietals are the main focus here, such as their heady, brooding Cagnulari, a rare Sardinian varietal with genetic ties to Graciano in Spain.
