  • About The Producer

Description

The Nuraghe Crabioni estate is located in the town of Sorso in the north-western province of Sassari and covers 35 hectares. The vineyards lie on gentle sloping hills and face the Asinara Gulf. This favourable position means that it enjoys a Mediterranean climate but it is also shielded by its characteristic hot southerly winds making it perfectly suited to the growing of Vermentino, Cannonau and Cagnulari native Sardinian grapes.

All work is carried out by hand without the use of additives so that only the best grapes are selected for wine production.
