Barrua (Carignano/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot) - £45.11
Producer: Agricola Punica
Region: Italian Islands, Italy
Awarded 91 points out of 100 in the Wine Spectator, Barrua is a star in the making. The wine comes from Sardinia and is a joint venture between Sassacia and Sandadi. Rich, concentrated and amazing is the only way to describe this wine.
The full bodied nature of this wine is balanced by its soft structure and ripe fruit, allowing it to cope with rich foods such as lamb, game or piquant spicy dishes. Deep ruby in colour with hints of violet and an intense, complex, inky bouquet of plum and blackberries, spices and bay leaves.
Sourced from 2 distinctive vineyard sites at Barrua and Narcao. Barrua supplies mostly Cabernet and Merlot on old bush vines and Narcoa is undergoing replanting, from pergola training to bush vine on the sandier areas cloer to the sea.
