Nasco is one of the typical vines of Southern Sardinia. This is a wine characterized by a long aging and by the peculiarities of the grapes that make it enveloping, but also extremely delicate. For this, remember that special morning sensation of the air, when you just went out into the vineyard, at sunrise. By which, the name is Bessiu, which in Sardinian language means: “be out”.
