The Parpinello family have passionately run this 30 hectare estate and winery for three generations. Giampaolo Parpinello and his son Paolo strive to maintain the respect for the typicity of the wines from the Sardinian terroir. The vineyards are situated on a gentle slope between Alghero and Sassari, in the North-West of the island. The most modern winemaking technology is successfully combined with traditional farming and respect for the environment. The result is high quality wines with aroma and flavour, recalling those of the area from which they originate.

Cannonau is the most important and exclusive red wine grape native to Sardinia, as it is thought to be the oldest variety in the Mediterranean - and is the origin of Grenache or Garnacha. The vineyard is located on a gentle slope between Alghero and Sassari. It sits atop a mixture of geological formations such as calcareous marne, conglomerate and sandstone. The vineyard is planted with a high density of vines. The newest innovations are implemented in the cultivation of the vineyard, while respecting the traditions and ecosystem of the geographical location. Pruning and harvesting take place manually. The meticulous selection of grape clusters ensures optimum quality.

The grapes were hand-harvested from a selection of the best bunches in the vineyard. Vinification took place with selected yeast in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 20 to 22°C. The wine was then underwent maceration for 10 days to extract the desired level of flavours, colour and aromatics, before being bottle aged.
