Perfumed nose with blackcurrants, blackberries and subtle red roses. Full-to medium-bodied with creamy, integrated tannins that caressing the mouth. Just slightly chewy at the end, but will soften in a year or two. Succulent and delicious. Drink or hold. 93/100 points, James Suckling
Producer Information: Agricola Punica
AGRIPUNICA is one of the most promising names in wine production. Born from a joint venture between the Tenuta San Guido Group who produce Sassicaia, Sardinian winery AGRIPUNICA, Santadi’s President Antonello Pilloni and legendary Tuscan winemaker, Giacomo Tachis. It was the latter who thought of Sardinia and convinced everyone that they could produce a fantastic wine from grapes grown in Sulcis.
In 2002, AGRIPUNICA acquired a company consisting of two estates, Barrua and Narcao, located in southwestern Sardinia in an area known as Basso Sulcis. As everyone knew the real potential of this region, after the first harvesting they all agreed and stated. “it will be a fantastic wine!”.
