Situated in the south west of Sardinia in an area known as Sulcis Meridionale, the award-winning Agricola Punica cellar is a joint venture between Sebastiano Rosa celebrated oenologist and winemaker at Sassicaia, Santadi President Antonello Pilloni, legendary Tuscan wine consultant Giacomo Tachis who is also renowned for his work at Sassicaia, Sardinian winery Cantina di Santadi and the famous Tenuta San Guido Estate responsible for Sassicaia owned by Sebastiano’s stepfather Marchese Nicolo Incisa Della Rocchetta.
Made exclusively from vines grown on the Barrua Estate, from an exciting blend of 85% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot, this wine has lovely complexity and depth. The aromas are deep and rounded with exotic notes of black cherry, wild strawberry, dried herbs and a hint of refined tobacco. The palate is pure and concentrated with layers of raspberry and black cherry fruit followed by savoury, liquorice and black pepper characters and an elegant mineral note on the finish. The tannins are fine and enveloping, balanced by an easing, refreshing acidity. To achieve perfect balance, the wine is matured in French oak barriques for 18 months and then in bottle for at least 12 months before release.
