Notes from the Winemaker:
“Barrua” is the name of the vineyard parcel within the Sulcis Iglesente region in southwest Sardinia. Grapes are sourced from the Barrua and Narcao vineyards. The Sulcis region is dominated by Carignano, the blend’s predominant grape of Spanish origin that is known for elegant and velvety tannins. Carignano has perfect terroir in the warm, well-exposed brown earth, composed of calcareous, clay and sandy soil. International varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot also thrive in the area’s optimal conditions. Bush vines are closely planted to minimize yields and maximize the wine’s concentration. Production is low: 0.4 millimeters. The final blend is a mix of these grapes balanced for the best results in the specific conditions of each harvest.

Harvest note:
2014 was a near perfect year with stable weather conditions. The season began with rain throughout winter and the beginning of spring. There was a mild end to spring with a dry and relatively hot summer and luckily no high picks of heat. Harvesting began in September and went straight through to the beginning of October. Because of such a wonderful season, this will be a very good vintage.

Tasting Notes:
With a deep violet color, the wine displays clean; on the nose elegant aromas of spices, wild herbs and mature red fruits. On the palate, the wine is soft and elegant, a unique blend of sage, myrtle, rosemary, vanilla flavors and fine tannins. Notes of red fruits, pepper and liquorice add an interesting spiciness before a harmonious and persistent finish.


Ratings & Reviews

91+ Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Deep red-ruby. Red cherry, dark plum, spices and earth on the nose, complicated by grilled herbs and flint. Plush, sexy and deep, delivering layered flavors of strawberry, licorice, and dried flowers. This broad wine offers an exciting combination of size and fresh acidity. The very long, savory finish features youthfully dusty but ripe tannins." - Ian D'Agata (Mar 2018)
