"I love the glazed cherries and roasted herbs here, in addition to dried plums and licorice. Full-bodied and very sophisticated on the palate, where juicy and structured tannins frame the red fruit and acidity, carrying it long on the finish. Drink now." 93 pts, James Suckling

Agripunica is a joint venture between the Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Group, Sardinian winery Cantina di Santadi, Santadi’s President Antonello Pilloni and the legendary Tuscan consulting oenologist Giacomo Tachis.

It was really Dr. Tachis who first thought about the Sardinia and Carignano match and he persuaded all the others in order to produce a fantastic Carignano wine.
In 2002 Agripunica bought a land divided into two estates: Barrua and Narcao, situated in the south western zone of Sardinia, in an area known as “Basso Sulcis”.
As everyone knew the real potential of this region, after the first harvesting they all agreed on saying ... “It will be a resounding wine!”

"A deep, dark brooding nose filled with notes of bramble, forest berries, black cherries, tea and dried herbs. Full-bodied and devilishly smooth on the palate with velvety tannins and more dark berry fruit along with a nice whack of liquorice on the finish. Very well priced at under £20, I also think it looks stunning!" Angus, Wine Guru
