Agricola Punica Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi IGT 2009 750ml

Agricola Punica Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi IGT

92 Point Wine Spectator: A fine, supple red, sporting velvety tannins, racy raspberry, cherry and plum fruit, joined by layers of spice, hot stone and underbrush notes. Well-balanced, elegant and long. Carignano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2017.

Deep ruby in color. Intense aromas with layers of blackberries, ripe plums, dry herbs and spice. A velvety texture infuses the mouth with opulent notes of concentrated ripe black fruits, red currants and licorice. Full bodied with balanced tannins ending in lengthy, elegant finish.

Hand harvested whole bunches were destemmed, crushed and macerated on the skins for 15 days with periodic pumping over. Fermentation starts soon after the crushing, thus at the same time of maceration in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The wine rested 18 months in 80 percent new French Allier barriques before blending, followed by six months in bottle prior to release.

Grapes are sourced from the Barrua vineyard, which lends its name to the wine. Carignano, the blend's predominant grape of Spanish origin, has found its perfect terroir in the warm, well exposed Sardinian terrain. Bush vines are closely planted, to minimize yields and maximize the wine's concentration.
