2017 Nuraghe Crabioni Vermentino di Sardegna DOC
100% Vermentino. Harvested mid-August. Refined in stainless steel.
Straw yellow colour with greenish hues. Delicate bouquet of tropical fruit, citrus, shades of magnolia, and elderflower. It opens with a pleasant sensation of well-balanced freshness, then mellowing, with a long, clean finish. The mouth feel is soft but lively, due to its well-balanced acidity.
Perfect paired with fish (especially grilled prawns and sea bass, fish soups, Mediterranean style baked fish). Perfect on its own.

- About The Producer
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.
