Poderi Parpinello Vermentino Sessantaquattro 2016
The Vermentino Sessantaquattro from Poderi Parpinello is a vibrant and spicy white wine displaying pinenuts and pineapple fruits, beautifully fresh and balanced.
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.
Vineyard - “Sixty-four" is the year in which Giampaolo Parpinello started his career as an oenologist in Sardinia. This wine commemorates his first 50 years of dedication and passion for vines and wines. 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, grown in the soils of calcareous marne, conglomerate sandstone. Pruning and harvesting are manual, with the careful selection of grape clusters.
Winemaking - This Vermentino was made from carefully selected grapes. A cool fermentation took place in order to preserve the characteristics of the Vermentino variety and the terroir. TastingNote Fine and elegant with citrus and yellow fruit aromas, through to a vibrant palate of green and lime fruits, which is beautifully fresh and balanced. Dry, with a pleasing note of bitter almonds on the long, sublime finish.
Serving Suggestion - Particularly suitable as an aperitif, it goes well with fish dishes, roasted or grilled tasty fleshy white fish such as those found locally in the gulf of Alghero. Excellent with shellfish and seafood.
