The Nuragus

White Wine DOC


Although in the recent years we have witnessed its gradual decrease in cultivation, definetely the vine Nuragus is, between the white grapes, the most widely grown in Sardinia. Its cultivation is more concentrated in the provinces of Cagliari and Oristano, where it seems to have been introduced in ancient times, most probably by the Phoenicians. Adaptability to any type of soil and abundant productivity (its production after arriving to 1,000,000 hectoliters, is now around 300,000 hectoliters, that is more than a third of the entire Sardinian wine production) are responsible for its spread. This vine has no particular soil and climate requirements, it is quite resistant to the cryptogams and, as already mentioned, is of excellent yeld: in fact reached in the traditional vineyards  where it is used the alberello sardo technique, also 100 q / ha, when in similar circumstances other varieties arrive with difficult at 50 q / hectare. From the vinification of its grapes  you get the wines DOC Nuragus of Cagliari, sparkling or  sweet.

It is a wine with a medium alcohol content, and a delicate straw colour, sometimes with nuances of light green, hints of white flowers, green apple and light citrus notes, dry, fruity, harmonious and slightly acid and fresh on the palate. The wine was granted DOC Nuragus di Cagliari status in 1975.

Excellent as an aperitif finds its rightful place throughout the meal, preferring fish dishes and seafood. Serve at a temperature of 8-10 ° C.
