2018 Nuraghe Crabioni Cannonau di Sardegna DOC ~ Red Wine

Nuraghe Crabioni

$36.90

750 ml bottle

100% Cannonau grapes from vineyards 200 metres from the sea in Sorso, north-west Sardinia. Aged in stainless steel tanks until it is bottled.

Ruby red colour. Intense aroma with slightly sweet notes of ripe red fruit: cherries, maraschino cherries in alcohol and plums. A warm, strong, mellow and full bodied, intense wine, with long persistence. Well balanced and extremely harmonious.

A very versatile wine. It can even be paired with fatty fish such as tuna, mackerel, sardines and anchovies. Poultry, lamb and pork. A marriage made in heaven with Sardinian suckling pig.

  • 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.
