It’s an ancient and noble white grape variety known since 1780.
In the past it was used to ennoble the Nuragus.
After the phylloxera epidemic, Semidano has known a period of total abandon and was replaced with other varieties much more productive.
The Cantina di Mogoro has promoted the recovery and enhancement by encouraging new plants and carrying on the practice for the DOC in the 90s.
In 1996, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has recognized the importance of this variety by establishing the DOC Sardegna Semidano and the respective sub area Mogoro that identifies a suitable area for the production of this fine wine.
Currently, all 30 hectares of hilly clayey-calcareous soils are situated at 350-450 m above the sea level and belong almost entirely to the contributing shareholders of the Cantina di Mogoro.
For this reason, it is quite safe to talk about a DOC that belongs exclusively to the Cantina di Mogoro.
