SOPRASOLE VERMENTINO DI SARDEGNA DOC

Vermentino is the most modern of the Sardinian vines, it has been part of the heritage of this island in the middle of the Mediterranean for four hundred years. Thinking about Vermentino means thinking about Sardinia, which has become his land of choice, his homeland. As happens in the vineyards that the Pala family has cultivated since 1950, always using the same clone, reproduced and adapted in these limestone hills overlooking the sea of the Gulf of Cagliari.
Soprasole is the Sardinia of brilliant light, of white cliffs, hills, emerald-colored vineyards as well as the waters of its sea in the light of the sun that caresses them… Soprasole is the blue night full of sparks and lights of memorable evenings; it is memories of walks on the beach scented with a thousand Mediterranean essences. It is a kite flying on the beach lost in the immense blue of the sky… it is the elegance and glamour of the most beautiful evenings. Soprasole is closing your eyes and finding yourself in Sardinia.
