More info

These thirty-year-old vines from the single “Is Crabilis” vineyard are low espalier trained. The soils are sand and clay/limestone rich in pebbles situated on hillsides 150 to 180 metres above sea level.

The juice was pressed and clarified, then fermented in stainless steel at 12ºC. The wine remained in contact with its fine lees for three months but saw no oak or malolactic, and was then bottled early to preserve freshness.

Pala

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 (Mourvèdre) and Carignano. Pala capture this diversity, offering wines of modern purity with genuine Sardinian style. Salvatore Pala established the estate in 1950, and it is now run by third-generation Mario Pala.
