Description

Agricola Punica Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi IGT by Sassicaia

Wine from a blend of 60% Carigano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 10% Syrah are vinified individually from spurred cordon vines cultivated in Basso Sulcis region. Deep ruby red in colour, the Agricola Punica Montessu is expressive take on Mediterranean wine. An intensely fruity nose with notes of licorice. In the mouth, this is an elegant wine with a full body.

In a normal year the grapes are harvested between the second half of September and the middle of October.The must is fermented with the skins at a temperature of between 25 and 30°C. It is periodically pumped over to facilitate the solubilization of the compounds present in the grapes. Malolactic fermentation confers roundness to the wine, which is then aged in French oak barrels(used) for approximately. 12 months.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

“I love the glazed cherries and roasted herbs here, in addition to dried plums and licorice. Full-bodied and very sophisticated on the palate, where juicy and structured tannins frame the red fruit and acidity, carrying it long on the finish. Drink now.”

“Deep ruby-red. Very elegant aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry, underbrush and graphite. Then wilder in the mouth, with hints of aromatic herbs, ink and flint complementing the dark berry and red cherry flavors on the long finish.”

Antonio Galloni Feb 2020

Aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, dried herb and brown spice take shape in the glass. Made with 60% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Syrah, the lithe, rather subdued palate suggests cassis, clove and a hint of star anise alongside polished tannins. KERIN O’KEEFE
