Agricola Punica Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi IGT

2015

In a Nutshell

A well-structured Carignan blend resulting from a partnership between Santadi and Tenuta San Guido's winemaker

Tasting Notes

Made from Carignan with a dash each of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot it is deep ruby red in colour with intense red fruit - red plums, red and black berries on the palate with flavours of prunes and a long licquorice finish. An elegant wine with a mouth filling texture with complexity and balancing acidity.

Production Notes

The must is fermented with the skins at a temperature of between 25 and 30°C. Malolactic fermentation lends a roundness to the wine, which is then aged in French oak barrels(used) for approximately 12 months.
