Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Some call Barrua the “Sassicaia of Sardinia,” and the 2013 Barrua won't diminish that comparison; the '13 bottling melds the wine's sauvage notes with Sassicaia's effortless elegance, creating a wine that's enjoyable now, but has the stuffing for the medium term. Rich blackberry and juicy blue fruits dance with crisp cassis, pressed herbs, smoky minerals, licorice and peppery spices in the floral-strewn, wildly elegant ’13 Barrua. This wine slinks across the palate with a feral grace; ripe fruits are wound around an elegant mineral core, while chewy tannins cling to the cheeks. A lingering, spicy finish completes the drinking experience of this rustic, food-friendly, delicious big red. A product of a joint venture between the Santadi co-op and Tenuta San Guido, the makers of Sassicaia, Barrua is an exceptional wine that defies easy classification. A blend of indigenous Carignano with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, grapes derive from the estate’s Barrua and Narcao vineyards; after separately fermenting whole clusters of each grape varietal in temperature-controlled stainless steel, the wine ages in oak before blending and bottling.
