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

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.
