Nuragus is an ancient local vine, which together with Cannonau represents the history and tradition of Sardinian viticulture. The production is concentrated in Cagliari and Oristano areas (98.5%). Its ripeness is late, especially in temperate zones. It’s a vigorous and pulpy grape, with large, dense and often winged bunches. The ripe peel recalls to Nasco grape, with a clear bright yellow color.
