Carignano Riserva Rocca Rubia Santadi 2012From: $34.90
The Carignano del Sulcis Riserva Rocca Rubia is exciting and flashy from the very first taste. Expressive dark red fruit, flowers, spices and mint all burst from the glass. Inviting and beautifully balanced, it impresses for its pliancy and sheer exuberance. Even better, it is a fabulous wine for the money. R.Parker
Agricola Punica BARRUA 2012From: $69.90
A Sardinian Sassicaia in the making
This so-called “Sardinian Sassicaia” is made by the same people who brought us the legendary
Tuscan red wine.
Barrua is a blend of Carignano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that sees some 18 months of oak aging. This edition shows a soft and slightly jammy style with dark blackberry preserves, dried cherry, black olive and generous secondary aromas of oak spice and tobacco.
Barrua always shows impeccable balance.
Considering the warm vintage conditions, this edition offers that same sense of overall harmony. The wine is engineered for either near or long term drinking. It should hold for a decade.
Agricola Punica is an undertaking between world renowned names in the winemaking business: Dr. Sebastiano Rosa (with a 40% share), Sardinian winery Cantina Sociale di Santadi (40%), Tenuta San Guido, under the direction of Marchese Nicoló Incisa della Rocchetta (10%), Santadi president Antonello Pilloni (5%), and legendary Tuscan consulting enologist Giacomo Tachis (5%).
