  4. S'elegas Nuragus di Cagliari DOC

This wine is made from the Nuragus grape, a native variety grown in the hillside area of Trexenta, at almost 660 feet above sea level. Nuragus is also the name of the ancient mortarless stone huts that can be found throughout Sardinia, and, as such, an image of a single nuragus graces the label. Following a gentle pressing of the grapes, the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve its fresh Mediterranean character.

Tasting Notes

Pale lemon in color, aromas of peaches and citrus fruits complement undertones of nuts and herbs.  On the palate, crisp acidity and light to medium body make for a crowd-pleasing wine perfect on a summer afternoon.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with shellfish in butter broth, velouté sauces, grilled calamari, or chicken saltimbocca.
