Agricola Punica Barrua 2016


Barrua is a red wine made form Carignano, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes vinified individually in our Narcao and Barrua vineyards from spurred cordon vines cultivated in Basso Sulcis. The must is fermented with the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for approximately. 15 days at between 25 and 30°C. It is periodically pumped over to facilitate the extraction of the compounds present in the skins. Malolactic fermentation confers softness to the wine, which is then aged in French oak barrels for approximately. 18 months (30% new). It is subsequently bottle-aged for at least a further12 months. The quality of the Carignano grape is excellent in the Sulcis area, not only in terms of colour, but also for the softness of its soluble compounds - from the tannins to the consistently low and elegant acidity and the smoothness of its main components. Its polyphenolic apparel is of a distinguishably sweet, extremely delicate, round tannin weave chromatically embroidered with refined anthocyanins. The wine is lively, deep ruby red; nature's gift of colour. It has complex scents of mature red fruits (mainly black cherry), spices, notes of liquorice and hints of myrtle. This is an elegant wine that shows exceptional workmanship.
