Winemaker Notes
With a deep violet color, the wine displays clean; on the nose elegant aromas of spices, wild herbs and mature red fruits. On the palate, the wine is soft and elegant, a unique blend of sage, myrtle, rosemary, vanilla flavors and fine tannins. Notes of red fruits, pepper and liquorice add an interesting spiciness before a harmonious and persistent finish.
Pair with roasted and grilled meat, game, and seasoned cheese

“Barrua” is the name of the vineyard parcel within the Sulcis Iglesente region in southwest Sardinia. Grapes are sourced from the Barrua and Narcao vineyards. The Sulcis region is dominated by Carignano, the blend’s predominant grape of Spanish origin that is known for elegant and velvety tannins. Carignano has perfect terroir in the warm, well-exposed brown earth, composed of calcareous, clay and sandy soil. International varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot also thrive in the area’s optimal conditions. Bush vines are closely planted to minimize yields and maximize the wine’s concentration.

From the makers of Tuscany's legendary Sassicaia, this Carignano-Cabernet-Merlot Sardinian blend boasts sunshine within. The wine delivers warm and penetrating aromas of forest berry, Mediterranean herbs and finely etched toasted notes thanks to 15 months in oak. It's thick and firm in the mouth with bruising tannins and a long, tasty finish. -- Rated 91 points Wine Enthusiast
