Carignan & Carignan Blends
Red Table Wine
Barrua is a blend of 85% Carignano and 15% French grown in Agricola Punica’s Narcao and Barrua vineyards – spurred cordon vines cultivated in the calcareous, clay-rich and sandy soils of Basso Sulcis.
The quality of the Carignano grape is exceptional in the Sulcis area of southern Sardinia: exceptional colour and exceptional softness of the grapes, from the tannins to the consistently low and elegant acidity and smoothness.
The bouquet provides complex aromas of ripe red fruit (mainly black cherry), spice, liquorice, and myrtle. The palate is extremely delicate, with round tannins providing a satiny mouthfeel. It is an elegant wine that shows exceptional craftsmanship.
“Very beautiful aromas of violets, purple fruit, fresh lavender and thyme follow through to a medium body with polished, lightly chewy tannins and a dark stone-fruit undertone. Delicious to drink now, but will improve with age. Drink or hold.” 93 points, James Suckling, February 2022
“An elegant, medium-bodied red that integrates supple tannins with a lovely range of coulised blackberry and black currant fruit, wild sage, black liquorice, milled black pepper and star anise flavours, and a subtle hint of fragrant, loamy earth. Fresh and lingering on the finish. Carignano, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2027.” 91 points, Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, December 2021
