A unique blend of 60% Carignano, 10% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot, from vines cultivated in the Basso Sulcis area which produces intensely flavoured wines. Deep, calcareous, clay and sandy soil and unique climate conditions (hot and arid in summer, and temperate in winter) produce very rich wines. This wine is bursting with character and fruit with intense flavours. It has notes of liquorice, dried fruits, spices and herbs with elegant and ripe tannins. There is a hint of spice on the finish from ageing in French oak barriques for approximately 15 months.
Situated in the south west of Sardinia, in an area known as Sulcis Meridionale, the award winning Agricola Punica cellar is a joint venture between five partners; Sebastiano Rosa (winemaker at Tenuta San Guido, home of Sassicaia), Sardinian winery Cantina di Santadi, Tenuta San Guido, Santadi President Antonello Pilloni and legendary Tuscan wine consultant Giacomo Tachis.
