Among the white-grape vines of Sardinia, Nuragus is still the most
widely cultivated, even though it has shown a gradual territorial
concentration of late. Growing is concentrated in the provinces of
Cagliari and Oristano, where it occupies some 3,300 hectares. The
origins, lost in time, place it among the oldest vines introduced to
Sardinia, probably being brought by Phoenician mariners, who built the
ancient city of Nora, the remains of which can still be seen in the south-west
coastal zone of Cagliari. The considerable diffusion of this vine over the
years may be due to its rusticity, adaptability to any type of terrain and,
above all, to its abundant productivity.
A wine of medium alcohol content and of a delicate straw colour, it is
derived from Nuragus grapes. The wine is sharp-tasting, and
pleasantly fresh to the palate. It often has verdant overtones, and hints
of white flowers, green apples and delicate citrus flavours. The wine
was granted DOC Nuragus di Cagliari status in 1975.
