Nuragus is also the most ancient grape of Sardinia, such as ancient and productive and also abandoned in the last years. We believe is part of our history and still has much, much to tell.

Sardinia is inside of every single I Fiori bottle of wine. I Fiori, the flowers is the meaning because every single varietal is one of the most important of the Island and is one of the most famous DOCs of Sardinia: Monica, Nuragus, Vermentino and Cannonau are their names, these are all flowers. The same flowers that che Mario Pala dedicates to his family. Nuragus for his daughter Elisabetta, Cannonau for the son Massimiliano, Monica is for the daughter Maria Antonietta and the Vermentino for Rita, Mario's wife.

SILENZI

Visiting the vineyards in our area means very often find themselves alone with the nature and in a land where the silence (Silenzio) is broken only by the sound of the wind or the singing of birds. These are the silences (Silenzi) of this land and these vineyards from where this three great wines of undisputed quality are made.
