I Fiori, 100% Vermentino – Pala (75cl) Sardinia
Appellation: Vermentino di Sardegna
Grape: 100% Vermentino
Producer: Sardinia’s mixture of grapes matches its location: as well as sharing the
Vermentino with Corsica, Provence and western Italy, it has also received
considerable input from Spain, in the form of Cannonau (Grenache),
Bovale (Graciano) and Carignano. Pala capture this diversity, offering
wines of modern purity with genuine Sardinian style.
Vineyard: These grapes come from the single “Is Crabilis” vineyard, a limestonesandy
hill completely covered in vines, which average thirty-five years
old. The top of the hill is at 220 metres above sea level and the vineyard
is situated about ten kilometres away from the winery.
Winery: After a soft pressing of the grapes, selected yeasts were added to the
must which was left to ferment at 15ºC in stainless steel vats. Following
fermentation, there is a light clarification, and the wine is then allowed to
rest for a few months in the vats before bottling.
Taste: Intense, persistent floral bouquet with notes of thyme and greengage.
A winning combination of depth and freshness on the palate – this is
