Agricola Punica Montessu 2012

Agricola Punica Montessu 750ml 2012     
Sku: 1914950*

Carignano, of Spanish origin and the blendís predominant grape, has found its perfect terroir in the warm, well-exposed Sardinian terrain. The grapes come from vines grown in the Basso Sulcis region on calcareous clay and sand soil. Hand harvested whole bunches are destemmed, crushed and macerated on the skins for several days prior to fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wine is oak aged before blending and bottle aging.

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

Rating
 Wine Advocate 91 points (Dec 2014)
The 2012 Montessu (an IGT Isola dei Nuraghi wine) is a beautiful blend of 60% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 10% Syrah that ages in oak for up to 12 months. It offers depth and personality with pretty fruit renderings that are backed by lighter shadings of spice, cracked peppercorn and pipe tobacco. It would pair next to a hearty winter minestrone with farro and black cabbage.

Food pairing
Pair with lamb or rich pork dishes.
