Tasting Notes

Barrua 2013 is a full bodied, juicy wine with aromas of dried fruits and Mediterranean herbs and spices. On the palate, notes of red berry fruits and morello cherries mingle with hints of sage and rosemary.Beautifully integrated and smooth textured, this wine will be delicious from release.
Armit Wines


Fully saturated deep ruby. Leafy nuances and notes of sassafras dominate the deep but youthfully reticent dark red fruit on the nose. Then smooth and dense, with forward flavors of red cherry, dark plum, cassis, and aromatic herbs. Finishes very long and spicy, with peppery tannins and building complexity. For maximum enjoyment, put this away in the cellar and open it in three to four years only. This is a blend of Carignano, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
93+ Points, Ian d’Agata (Vinous)

REGION

Sardinia, Italy

150 miles off the West Coast of Italy, Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily. Its culture, language, architecture, place names and of course grape varieties are all very different to those found on the mainland thanks to centuries of rule from different empires. In fact, Italian grape varieties are almost nowhere to be found. Instead there is a wealth of French and Spanish varieties including Grenache (Cannonau in Sardinian) Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Vermentino (traditionally associated with the South of France). Sardinian wine culture has developed significantly in recent years and this is definitely a region to watch.

TASTING NOTES

Modern but restrained fruit with a tremendous floral scent, dark chocolate and leather. Manages to tame the wild tannins of Nebbiolo, giving a fine abrasion on the palate and bright acidity. Remarkably delicate structure, and very much drinkable now.

TASTING NOTES

An harmonious blend of 93% Merlot with 7% Cabernet Franc, this is a very attractive, medium to full bodied wine with ripe plum aromas mingled with sweet wild herbs and hint of lavender. Refreshing red plum flavours, with darker forest fruit notes developing as the wine evolves, are balanced by a lively freshness and a fine mineral quality which runs...
