Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi - 2002(W-335)

Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi
Big Powerful Earthy Spicy

Winery Story

The southwest corner of Sardinia is a nearly perfect environment for the hot climate-loving grape varietals. Winters are mild and wet and su... (more...)mmers torrid and dry with temperatures, stoked by the fierce African winds blowing across the Sardinian Sea, among the hottest in Italy. An average of seven hours of sunlight daily enables the fruit to reach a level of ripeness such that polymerization of the tannins begins within the berry while it is still on the vine.

Tasting Note

Deep ruby in color, this rich red starts off with hints of violet in an intense, complex, inky bouquet replete with plum and blackberries, r... (more...)ed fruit jam, spices and bay leaves. Velvety in the mouth, the wine has a mellow approachable structure backed by sweet tannins and a long, spicy licorice finish.

An earthy, Sardinian Carignane blend (w/ Bordeaux varietals). Perfect pairing for the braised short rib and polenta with which it was served.

A very big, delicious, fruity flavor, with a quick resolution. It starts off in the mouth as if it's going to be huge, but disappears quickly. It's a wine I'd describe as being both very big and quite light at the same time. It's smooth and enjoyable, very well balanced, but with a lot of unique character. A special wine.
