“Intense and Spicy”

Barrua is a full-bodied blend of the traditional Carignano del Sulcis, and Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The vineyards, in the Basso Sulcis subregion of Sardinia, receive ample sunshine and warmth, contributing beautifully ripe tannins. Proximity to the sea tempers the climate and brings balance and freshness. The approach to winemaking here is similar to that of Italy's famous Supertuscans: blending traditional and non-traditional varieties, growing and selecting the most pristine fruit possible, and ageing in the finest oak barriques that money can buy. Meticulous winemaking, using state of the art temperature controlled vats, is followed by 18 months maturation in oak barriques and a further 6 in bottle. The result is a special, distinguishably Sardinian but of world-class quality and refinement.

The team behind Agricola Punica contains some of the most formidable names in Italian wine. The initial vision and driving force is Giacomo Tacchis - the man widely regarded as the Supertuscans' genius architect who co-created Tignanello, Solaia and Sassicaia. Backing him is Marchese Nicolò Incisa Della Rocchetta (owner of Tenuta San Guido of Sassicaia fame) and Antonello Pilloni of the local Cantina di Santadi. Agricola Punica is one of the most renowned names in the wine world as a result of their vision of Sardinian wine and their belief that Sulcis is the perfect environment for growing Carignano.

95 points - James Suckling - "Aromas of rosemary, lavender and black liquorice follow through to a full body that show liquorice, walnut shell, tar and dark fruit. Fascinating wine with real personality. Always refined."
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Merlot
2019 will be remembered as a year when May was particularly cold, which caused flowering to be delayed and had the potential to negatively affect the harvest. Red varieties were less affected by these factors and the day to night temperature swings meant that wonderfully aromatic profiles were present in the grapes. The excellent health of the grapes meant that this is a harvest of exceptional quality.
Complex notes of mature red fruits such as black cherry, liquorice, spices and hints of myrtle. On the palate, notes of sage and myrtle with touches of pepper offer a persistent and harmonious finish.
Charred steak, rich stews and casseroles, or slow-roasted shoulder of lamb would all complement this big, bold, polished red wine
