2020 Pala i Fiori Vermentino
About The Winery
The Pala family began their adventure with wine in 1950 amongst the rolling, vine-covered hills of Serdiana, an idyllic village located in southern Sardinia. With mild winters and warm, dry summers, this part of Italy's second largest island is ideal for grape growing, with the traditional varietals finding a special home here. Under the guidance of Mario Pala as of 1995, the winery continues to be family-owned. The value of tradition and the innovation of modern techniques are both incorporated into the winemaking process at Pala.

"Cooked apples, spices, jasmine and loquat are all on offer on the nose. Medium to full body, juicy acidity and an oily finish with tangy acidity to match. Drink now"
Notes of spring flowers and a hint of spice on the nose. Medium-bodied with accents of citrus and apple on the palate followed by a hint of salinity on the finish. Pair with seafood!
Crabilis, which means “ancient goat shelter” in Sardinian dialect, is the name of a vine-covered, sandy limestone hill not far from the Pala winery. Originally called Crabilis (the actual name of the vineyard where the vermentino grows), the wine is now renamed i Fiori (the flowers) in honor of Sardinia’s biodiversity. The flower on the label is an endemic plant of the island.
