Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi Red Wine
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

Barrua is deep crimson red in color with violet highlights and aromas of crushed fresh blackberries and a suave, silky palate supported by s... (more...)weet, refined tannins and a fine note of acidity. Together, the color, fragrance, extract and alcohol achieve a degree of richness, which yields wine of opulent suppleness, elegant tannins and finely tuned acidity. This harmony comes as no surprise as Barrua is made by the world-renowned winemaker of Sassicaia, arguably the globe’s best Super Tuscan.
