About the Winery:
Founded in 2003, this 85 acre property is located in Sorso, Sardegna. Nuraghe Crabioni takes its name from a nuraghe on the estate, located in an area referred to as “Lu Crabioni”. A nuraghe is a conal tower that was widely constructed throughout ancient Sardegna and is considered a unique symbol of the island. Nuraghe Crabioni considers its nuraghe an inspirational landmark that goes hand-in-hand with the winery’s mission to produce high quality wines that express their distinctly Sardinian character. 

About this wine:

Vermentino is a Mediterranean white variety, probably from Spain, known in the south of France as Malvoisie Gros Grain. Vermentino spread along the coasts of the northern Tyrrhenian Sea and subsequently established itself in Sardinia, where it found an ideal terroir and pairs perfectly with the fish based cuisine of the island.

TASTING NOTES Straw yellow color with greenish hints. Intense nose with sweet notes of exotic fruit; fresh notes of magnolia, sambuco and almonds, saline sensasions. Powerful, full and intense in the mouth with enjoyable acidity and minerality; Persistent with an almond finish characteristic of this varietal.

FOOD PAIRING Lovely aperitif and an ideal fish pairing; excellent complement to grilled shrimp or sea bass, fish soups, oven-baked grouper and cheeses.

Ratings & Reviews

Wine Spectator:
"Crisp and light-bodied, with a salty base note and a pretty mix of nectarine and star fruit, pickled ginger and orchard blossoms. Drink now. 1,500 cases made, 300 cases imported." – AN (Dec 2022)
