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.

From the vinification of its grapes you get the wines DOC Nuragus of Cagliari, sparkling or sweet.
