PALA 09 "ESSENTIJA" BOVALE
PALA 2009 "ESSENTIJA" BOVALE
Item: #308013
Bottle Size:750ml
$26.98
Quantity

The rarest and most robust of Sardinia’s native red grapes, the Bovale Sardo is nearly black in color, densely packed and explosively wide-ranging in flavor. For Pala, the Cannonau Read More...
and Monica are grown at higher altitudes to produce better balance and aroma, but the Bovale grape is sun-loving and is grown on a hot, rocky plain. Look for blackberry fruit, luscious fig, ripe black olive and a thread of savory wild herbs throughout. There are over 4 million sheep grazing on the rugged hills of Sardinia—it’s easy to imagine a glass of this powerful red as a perfect accompaniment to a rack of lamb.
PALA 13 "STELLATO" VERMENTINO
PALA 2013 "STELLATO" VERMENTINO
Item: #302001

The more we taste Vermentino the more we like it- not only because it is a bright and citrusy white, but also there are so many layers and possible expressions within the grape. The "Stellato" Read More...
is Pala's top tier Vermentino set aside from a single vineyard site; but the real interest here is the way "Stellato" builds richness and viscosity on top of bracing, mouth-watering frame. Think of an ideal blend of Chablis' minerality combined with the creaminess, marzipan and nut-oil qualities you might find in a White Rhône blend. Look for bright lime and tangerine fruit with more exotic yellow plum and white flowers. One of Italy's top wine guides (L'Espresso) just selected Pala "Stellato" Vermentino as the top Vermentino in Sardinia. Vermentino is far and away the most widely produced wine in Sardnia, so that's quite an honor. We're not surprised-- "Stellato" is delicious and quite striking!

Item: #301948
Bottle Size:750ml
$24.95
Quantity

60% Carignano, 10% Cabernet, 10% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Franc

The founders of Agricola Punica on the island of Sardinia include winemakers and owners from Tenuta Read More...
San Guido (of Sassicaia fame in Tuscany) and Cantina Santadi (in Sardinia). The Montessu bottling is made of predominantly Carignano, which is of Spanish origin. The grape has found its perfect terroir in the warm, well-exposed Sardinian terrain. The grapes come from vines grown in the Basso Sulcis region on calcareous clay and sand soil. Hand harvested whole bunches are destemmed, crushed and macerated on the skins for several days prior to fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wine is aged in French oak for 15 months, 10% of which is new. Serve with your finest lamb, beef and pork dishes, or with aged hard cheeses.

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - " Fresh and finely detailed, with ripe raspberry and dark blackberry notes backed by fine tannins and hints of wild flower, tobacco and cherry pit."

WINE ENTHUSIAST 90 POINTS - " Elegant and tight, this blend offers savory tones of cured meat and dried fruit, followed by green notes of curry leaf and herb. The wine is tangy, thick and persistent on the palate."
