2016 Nuraghe Crabioni Sussinku Cagnulari Romangia Rosso IGT

750ml

100% Cagnulari, a relatively rare, indigenuous Sardinian grape. Nuraghe Crabioni is one of the few wineries to produce it in purity. The wine ages in stainless steel tanks until it is bottled.

Intense ruby red colour. Aromas with balsamic notes and ripe red fruit, which give much complexity to the wine. On the palate, the structure and the suppleness are well felt, as is, above all, the excellent acidity which is typical of Cagnulari and adds length and persistence to the flavours. A polished and elegant wine with excellent ageing prospects.

Wonderful with charcuterie, medium-aged cheeses, pasta with tomato sauce, risotto, white and red meat roasts. Ideal with traditional Sardinian cuisine.

  • 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.
