CENTOGEMME BRUT

Alghero Torbato Denominazione di Origine Controllata

There’s a story behind the name of this dry, sparkling wine. In 2006, the enologist Giampaolo Parpinello decided to graft the first 100 buds of Torbato, a white-wine grape variety cultivated only in Sardinia. Those first plants have now become more than 50.000 vines, which represent the heart of the Poderi Parpinello.
