Professional Wine Reviews for Agricola Punica Montessu Isola Dei Nuraghi Igt Carignan 2014

Rated 91 by Decanter
Deep ruby. Enticing aromas of flint, underbrush, wild herbs and red cherry on the spicy nose. Then rich, deep and dense with polished tannins and a multilayered and surprisingly complex personality for this wine. Finishes with outstanding length and noteworthy grip, while featuring a leafy echo that adds further complexity. One of the most refined versions of Montessu I’ve ever had. This is a complex blend of Carignano, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. (Vinous)

Winery Agricola Punica

Varietal: Carignan

Carignan is an ancient blue-skinned grape varietal, thought to be indigenous to the Aragon region of Spain. However, today it is most commonly associated with the fine wines of southern France, and has been grown in many countries around the world which have the warm and dry conditions it requires to thrive. Carignan is recognized as being quite a sensitive vine, highly susceptible to all kinds of rot and mildew, although producing excellent results when given the right conditions and handled correctly. Its high tannin levels and acidity make the Carignan grapes very astringent, and as such, they are often used as a blending grape to give body to other, lesser bodied varietals. Despite this, with careful treatment, Carignan can produce superb single varietal wines packed full of character and unique attributes.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
