Nasco di Cagliari

Nasco is one of the oldest white grape varieties of Sardinia. Its name could derive from the typical smell of moss, in Latin "Muscus", from which the Sardinian terms Nuscu, Nascu. Its diffusion limited to the hinterland of the ancient port of Karales (Cagliari) suggests that it arrived on the island through this landing. The Nasco grape gives a wine characterized by a "musky" scent, even better enhanced by the presence of a sugary residue (not by chance the most common type is as a dessert wine, especially fortified wine).
