Agricola Punica Barrua Isola Dei Nuraghi 2013

Member Review by aronowm2:

this wine is a baby. rustic grainy tannins that really provide a dusty gorgeous finish. even after a two hour decant it is still very closed. you can tell that this will turn complex and open up immensely with time. I suggest holding it for a year or two which is exactly what I am going to do. I'll revisit in a year.

Very rich and delicious. Still relatively young. I would think that 2-5 years of cellaring would benifit it greatly. The most amazing thing about it was on the very 1st sip there was a profound banana flavor. 4 out of 5 tasters in our group spontaneously descibed it the same. No off putting at all, but certainly unique in my experience.

Tre Bicchieri - Winemaker Notes - Agricola Punica is a ground-breaking endeavor from Super-Stars of Italian winemaking. Dr. Sebastiano Rosa, architect of Sassicaia at Tenuta San Guido and the President of Catina Santadi Antonello Pilloni. Giacomo Tachis who helped create the original Super Tuscan, Sassicaia, as well as Tignanello and Solaia, is the technical director. Sardinia is a region steeped in winemaking traditions that is quickly falling into step with the rest of Italy. Dr. Rosa recounts: It was Giacomo Tachis who turned us on to Sardinia and the sweet, soft tannins of Carignano. He convinced us that we could make a great Carignano-based wine There are few people making wine here, and the potential is tremendous, a similar situation to Bolgheri, but a longer tradition of viticulture. We are at the beginning of something great. Barrua is deep crimson red in color with violet highlights and aromas of crushed fresh blackberries and a suave...

Intensives Purpurrot mit violetten Reflexen. In der Nase facettenreich mit süsslichen dunklen Früchten, edlen Röstnoten und etwas Tabak. Im Gaumen sehr komplex, saftige und feingeschliffene Tannine, Brombeeren, etwas Zedern und Schokolade. Im Abgang herrlich lang und geschmeidig.

Wine & Spirits ReviewBarrua is a 75-acre vineyard in southwest Sardinia farmed as a joint venture between the families behind Sassicaia in Tuscany and Santadi in Sardinia. Made from 85% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot, this is a lush, modern wine with dark fruit flavors and the sweetness of new French oak. It's delicious now, but will need a few years in the cellar to show its full potential.Wine Tasting NotesBarrua is deep crimson red in color with violet highlights and aromas of crushed fresh blackberries and a suave, silky palate supported by sweet, refined tannins and a fine note of acidity. Together, the color, fragrance, extract and alcohol achieve a degree of richness which yields wine of opulent suppleness, elegant tannins and finely tuned acidity: a textbook expression of the Carignano grape.

The finished wine spends roughly 18 months in Allier oak barriques, a third of which are new, an third of one harvest's use, and a third of two harvest's use. The blend, composed of 85% Carignane, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot, is

Rich plum and wild flower aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of velvety, slightly chewy tannins and a long aftertaste of vanilla, plum and tea. Soft, velvety and opulent. Carignano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2009. 6,250 cases made. -JS ** Only 11 in Stock **
