Poderi Parpinello Vermentino Ala Bianca 2020

The Vermentino Ala Bianca from Poderi Parpinello is a white wine which is full of flavour of ripe tropical fruit, lime and pineapple coulis with a spicy finish.

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 - The 2017 vintage was characterised by a hot summer with little rainfall. This resulted in reduced yields but the grapes were harvested in an excellent, healthy condition and delivered rich varietal 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 unique characteristics, delicacy and Mediterranean hints. The vineyard is located on gentle slopes between Alghero and Sassari, where the vines are planted at a high density in a mixture of geological formations such as calcareous marne, conglomerate and sandstone. The vineyard is cultivated respecting tradition and the ecosystem of its location.

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. No oak was used during vinification in order to preserve the varietal characteristics of the Vermentino grape and to express the elements of terroir from which this wine hails.

Tasting Note - Elegant and fine aromas of ripe tropical fruits, mineral notes and an intriguing hint of bitter almonds on the finish.

Serving Suggestion - Perfect as an apéritif, but also an ideal and elegant accompaniment to fish dishes, seafood and white meat served in a creamy sauce.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
