Agripunica is a joint venture betewwn the Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Group, Sardinian winery Cantina di Santadi, Santadi’s President Antonello Pilloni and the legendary Tuscan consulting oenologist Giacomo Tachis.
It was really Dr. Tachis who first thought about the Sardinia and Carignano match and he persuaded all the others in order to produce a fantastic Carignano wine. In 2002 Agripunica bought a land divided into two estates: Barrua and Narcao, situated in the south western zone of Sardinia, in an area known as “Basso Sulcis”.
At the moment the Punica Farm produces two great red wines, Barrua and Montessu, and a delicious white wine called Samas.
All of them fall under the appellation I.G.T. Isola Dei Nuraghi, originating from tipical Sardinian grapes exceptionally blended with some French varietals.
In the Sulcis the quality of Carignano is excellent, not only for the colour: from tannins to the acid titrant patrimony always temperate and elegant as well as the souplesse of its more relevant components.
