This 100% Nasco variety comes from one of Sardinia’s most ancient white grapes. The fruit is picked in October to heightened levels of complexity. The varietal name comes after the Latin word for moss, referring to its characteristic brushwood aromas. After four months in barrique and lengthy bottle age, the wine’s Mediterranean depth of flavor is pleasingly subtle and silky in structure.
