Description: Agricola Punica is a project which, since 2002, has brought together some of the most celebrated names of the Italian wine industry: Tenuta San Guido, Santadi, Sebastiano Rosa and the legendary oenologist Giacomo Tachis, creator of fabled wines like Sassicaia and Tignanello. Barrua is a Bordeaux-style red, intense, and with a strong personality. An intense and vibrant garnet colour, it reveals excellent depth on the nose and emanates complex aromas of ripe black berries, myrtle, thyme, sweet spices, tobacco and liquorice. On the palate, it demonstrates its impeccable fabrication by means of its smoothness, powerfulness and elegant tannins. Each sip of Barrua caresses the palate and its ripe fruit, quinine and rhubarb notes maintain a lengthy persistence.
