Nuragus

Nuragus

White grape variety, most cultivated in Sardinia (about 3000 hectares).
Nuragus was brought to Sardinia by Phoenicians, founders of the ancient city of Nora.
Its production is actually focused in the district of Cagliari, Oristano and the Middle Campidano. It’s a vine very resistant to pest attacks, long-lasting, and it buds and blooms late.
As a late ripening grape (1-2 days of October), it prefers temperate zones.
The varietals are dry, with a pleasant freshness due to slight acidity.
