Founded in 1950, Mario Pala is now the 3rd generation overseeing the Pala property, an estate focusing on single vineyards within Sardinia. They aim to show the uniqueness of the region as well as unique grapes such as Cannonau (an indigenous grape which origins were long disputed).

It’s full and robust, and is capable of replacing an afternoon coffee. This wine is perfect to keep you warm in the cold winter nights, alongside a bowl of beef stew and a fireplace.
