The name Dolianova in Sardinia has always been synonymous with the production of quality wines. The establishment of Cantine di Dolianova in 1949 aimed to continue and elevate this tradition. In those early years, when Sardinia was still in its developmental stages and significantly different from today, a collective of winemakers formed a cooperative effort to enhance the value and personal investment in their labor, leveraging their collective strength.
For 70 years, the Cantine’s values have been passed down through generations, including a deep love for the land, a passion for the vineyards, and a commitment to constant improvement to produce wines of exceptional quality. Today, they continue to diligently work towards delivering the highest standard using the finest Sardinian grape varieties.
The Cantine di Dolianova looks forward to the future with strength and a profound understanding gained from 70 years of history. Their wisdom is rooted in a winemaking tradition that spans 3,000 years, adding to their readiness for what lies ahead.
Nasco is a white grape variety that is currently lesser-known, primarily grown in specific areas of southern Sardinia. However, it is a highly refined and esteemed grape variety, once considered one of the best in Sardinia. With a historical presence on the island dating back to Roman times, Nasco has recently been rediscovered and appreciated by wine enthusiasts.
The aroma of Nasco wines reflects their refinement, with delicate notes of white flowers, citrus blossoms, and hints of aromatic herbs. On the palate, these wines reveal a remarkable balance of flavours. They exhibit a harmonious blend of refreshing acidity, ripe fruit notes, and subtle mineral undertones.
While Nasco may have been less recognised in recent times, its resurgence has brought it back into the spotlight, earning the appreciation of discerning wine connoisseurs. These wines pair beautifully with seafood, ranging from delicate shellfish to robust fish dishes. Nasco’s versatility allows it to be enjoyed with various culinary delights, including fresh salads and creamy cheeses.
