2016 Montessu Carignano Agricola Punica Sardinia Italy Red

St Barth’s Wine


At the moment the Punica Farm produces two great red wines, Barrua and Montessu, and a delicious white wine called Samas. All of them fall under the appellation I.G.T. Isola Dei Nuraghi, originating from typical Sardinian grapes exceptionally blended with some French varietals. In the Sulcis the quality of Carignano is excellent, not only for the color: from tannins to the acid titrant patrimony always temperate and elegant as well as the souplesse of its more relevant components. 

Agripunica is a joint venture between the Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Group and  Sardinian winery Cantina di Santadi, Santadi’s President Antonello Pilloni and the legendary Tuscan consulting oenologist Giacomo Tachis.

Composition: 60% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 10% Syrah. 

A beautifully fresh red, a hint of structure and fine backbone of acidity but predominately a weighty concentration of plum, dark cherry and subtle spice. Aging in old oak has softened the texture and provided balance without adding any overt oak character. The finish is mineral with a hint of rubber and a powerful whack of bitter cherry that lifts the palate.
