mamuthone

'Cantina Giampietro Puggioni' in Mamoiada, situated in the province of Nuoro, produces excellent wines, exporting on both a national and international level.

One of the wines produced at the winery is the Mamuthone, whose name comes from the folk mask of the same name, which has made the town of Mamoiada and the Sardinian region famous throughout the world.

The Mamuthone is produced in two variants: red, made from Cannonau grapes harvested between late September and early October, and white, made from 100% Vermentino grapes harvested in early September.
