Professional Wine Reviews for Agricola Punica Montessu Isola Dei Nuraghi Igt 2015

Rated 93 by James Suckling
This is a dense and rich red with smoked wood, dried bark, tea and ripe fruit. Very flavoful. Full body. intense. Velvety tannins. Drink in a year or two. (Suckling)
Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
This is the estate's second wine, which is a tad less formal than the top-shelf Barrua. The 2015 Montessu represents a hearty blend of 60% Carignano with equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. It ages in oak for up to one year. The wine reveals an inky blackish appearance with spots of ruby brilliance that shine from within. Cabernet-like aromas of dark fruit, spice, grilled herb and black olive are immediate and recognizable. The wine is layered and soft in terms of texture, and it grips the palate with firm intensity.

Winery Agricola Punica

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
