Wine

Montessu, IGT Isola dei Nuraghi, Agricola Punica, 75cl

£17.40

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.

A blend of 60% Carignano with the balance made up of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. A beautifully fresh red, a hint of structure and fine backbone of acidity but predominately a weighty concentration of plum, dark cherry and subtle spice. Ageing in old oak has softened the texture and provided balance without adding any overt oak character. The finish is mineral with a hint of rubber and a powerful whack of bitter cherry that lifts the palate. Can be approached now but will only benefit from another 6 months in bottle.

  Expert reviews

2012 Vintage:
Ripe and sweet on the nose with a dusting of earthiness. Lots of sun with a lively, tangy finish even if less serious and ambitious than the Barrua.
Jancis Robinson May 2014
