Italian White Wine from Sardinia
Sardinia is one of the wine growing regions on the rise and has been producing wines with a lot of personality and robustness.
As the second largest island in the Mediterranean, just behind Sicily, has already been invaded and commanded by various kingdoms and empires to the very beginning of history, and therefore has great culinary diversity, linguistic, architectural and, of course, wine.
The winegrowers in the region are very committed to creating wines of exceptional quality that are gaining international recognition day after day. Sardinia is today one of the great promises of the wine world.

The grapes Nuragus
Nuragus is a white grape variety used in Sardinia to produce Nuragus di Cagliari, one of several varietal DOC wines produced around the island's capital, Cagliari. As is the case for much Sardinian wine, most of this is consumed locally, so it is rarely seen in export markets.
The name Nuragus itself is that of a small town in the hills between Cagliari and the fishing town of Oristano (where the specialty is Vernaccia di Oristano). Nuragus is almost unknown and unplanted outside the hills and plains of southern Sardinia, but even in an area as small as this, there is room for synonyms to develop; Nuragus also goes by the names Abbondosa and Axina.
An ancient vine, Nuragus is thought to have been brought to Sardinia by the Phoenicians in the 12th Century BC. The vine is high yielding and produces light-bodied wines with marked acidity.
Food matches for Nuragus include:
- Linguine alla vongole (clam pasta)
- Nigiri sushi with salmon
- Green salad with smoked chicken
