Description

Agricola Punica Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi

Top quality Sardinian wine from the makers of Sassicaia. Agricola Punica Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi is a thing of beauty and a fantastic example of modern Sardinian fine wine.

Deep violet colour. The sensuous nose knits together dark cherry, ripe plums and cassis on a spicy background of Tobacco leaf and liquorice.  The rich and full bodied palate has a luscious and silky texture, lively acidity and smooth tannins. Ripe plum, black cherry and rich red fruit flavours interplay with mocha, vanilla, wild herbs and gamey nuances. Closes with a persistent spicy finish.

Drink now but will age well for the next 8+ years.

The blend comprises of 85% old vine Carignan, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. The fruit comes from spurred cordon vineyards grown in Basso Sulcis in Agripunca’s Narcao and Barrua farms. The vineyards have clay-like, sandy and calcareous soils.

After a manual harvest, the grapes go through destemming and crushing. The must ferments with the skins at a temperature between 25°–28°C in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for a period of 15 days. It goes through periodical pumping over to facilitate the extraction of compounds present in the skins. Malolactic fermentation confers smoothness to the wine, which then ages in French oak barrels for approximately 18 months. Finally, the wine rests in bottles for 6 months before their release to the world.
