The grapes to produce Vermentino di Sardegna DOC “Sessantaquattro” Poderi Parpinello were carefully selected, to ensure the highest quality. A long prefermentation maceration took place at low temperatures, followed by cool fermentation which lasted for 15 days. Vinification of Vermentino di Sardegna DOC “Sessantaquattro” Poderi Parpinello took place in stainless steel tanks to preserve the characteristics of the Vermentino variety with four months’ ageing on the lees to impart texture and complexity.
“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.
The Parpinello family has run this 15 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. Poderi Parpinello winery 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.
