"Tre Bicchieri - Winemaker Notes - Agricola Punica is a ground-breaking endeavor from Super-Stars of Italian winemaking. Dr. Sebastiano Rosa, architect of Sassicaia at Tenuta San Guido and the President of Catina Santadi Antonello Pilloni. Giacomo Tachis who helped create the original Super Tuscan, Sassicaia, as well as Tignanello and Solaia, is the technical director. Sardinia is a region steeped in winemaking traditions that is quickly falling into step with the rest of Italy. Dr. Rosa recounts: It was Giacomo Tachis who turned us on to Sardinia and the sweet, soft tannins of Carignano. He convinced us that we could make a great Carignano-based wine There are few people making wine here, and the potential is tremendous, a similar situation to Bolgheri, but a longer tradition of viticulture. We are at the beginning of something great. Barrua is deep crimson red in color with violet highlights and aromas of crushed fresh blackberries and a suave, silky palate supported by sweet, refined tannins and a fine note of acidity. Together, the color, fragrance, extract and alcohol achieve a degree of richness which yields wine of opulent suppleness, elegant tannins and finely tuned acidity: a textbook expression of the Carignano grape."
