Agricola Punica Barrua 2011

Agricola Punica Barrua 750ml 2011       
Sku: 18156

This is a rich, dark wine bursting with black fruit, sage, licorice, herbs and minerals. There is wonderful delineation and nuance in the glass, along with a sense of richness that frames the fruit beautifully on the long, long finish.

Tasting notes
Deep ruby in color, the wine offers intense aromas and flavors of black fruit, dry herbs and spice. It is full-bodied with a velvety texture and balanced tannins, ending in a lengthy, elegant finish.

A rich and tarry red, offering creamy black olive, espresso, creme de cassis and grilled herb notes in a supple, well-knit frame. Medium-bodied and mouthwatering, with a lingering hint of star anise. Carignano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2025. 16,667 cases made.-AN
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Dec 2014)
The IGT Isola dei Nuraghi 2011 Barrua is a hearty blend of 85% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot that is aged up to 18 months in oak. The wine boasts a compelling international signature that borrows from the great wines of Bolgheri and Bordeaux. The fruit reaches perfect maturity with luscious ripeness and deep aromatic intensity. At the back are pretty spice, tobacco and dark chocolate tones that build the wine’s personality. Barrua will hold five years or more.

Food pairing
Pair with braised lamb or rich stews.
