"Montessu" Isola dei Nuraghi IGT 2019 - Agripunica

If the category had already been created, this important red wine could fall into the Supersardo typology, winking at the famous Supertuscans that in recent years have enjoyed great success on the main world markets. After all, this Montessu di Agripunica is the result of a collaboration between the Sardinian winery Santadi and Tenuta San Guido, who certainly know their way around "Super" wines. This red wine, in particular, is the soft, velvety and powerful expression of the Sulcis area in Sardinia. Isola dei Nuraghi IGT, this robust and important red wine comes from a successful blend of different grape varieties. Carignano, in clear predominance, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah, in small percentages. Grapes from the Narcao and Barrua estates in Santadi, where the soils are stony and composed of sand, clay and limestone. Each grape variety is vinified separately and the different wines are then transferred to barriques. The final blend, on the other hand, is created in vitrified cement tanks, where the wine rests for about 40 days. Ruby red colour with violet reflections, the nose has intense aromas, with clear memories of red fruits and aromatic herbs that recall the Mediterranean. In the mouth Montessu reveals flavours of dark red fruit. Soft and savoury, it has clear hints of caper, rosemary and black pepper. The finish is persistent and silky. A wine to be uncorked on the occasion of important dinners, Montessu goes well with grilled meats, sliced meats or medium and long aged cheeses.

Azienda Agricola Punica was established in 2002 at the behest of some illustrious exponents of the national wine scene. We are talking about Tenuta San Guido, producers of Sassicaia, and Cantina Santadi. The trait d'union between the two important realities was Giacomo Tachis, who by a lucky coincidence was the consultant oenologist of both, and the headquarters of the new winery was established in Santadi, in the heart of Basso Sulcis. The company produces three wines under the Agripunica brand. Three small masterpieces that are now established in international markets, and exported to over 35 countries.
