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 thought to have originated in the Aragon region of Spain, but has spread throughout the Old and New worlds due to its unique characteristics and powerful flavors and features. Today, it is most notably cultivated in Languedoc in France, in Algeria, Sardinia and California, where it is most commonly used as a blending varietal, as its strong tannins and high levels of acidity help boost weaker wines and make them more complex. Carignan is often seen as something of a challenging grape varietal for wineries, as although it often produces high yields, it is particularly susceptible to various forms of rot and fungus. However, when handled carefully and given the correct conditions, the results can be stunning.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
