The considerable talents of Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia proprietor Sebastiano Rosa, oenologist Giacomo Tachis and noted Sardinian producer Santadi come together to produce the wines from Punica. The vineyards are situated in the DOC Carignano Del Sulcis area, the wine falls under the I.G.T. Appelation of Isola dei Nuraghi, a name referencing the ancient stone buildings built by the Nuragic civilization which shaped the island’s development from the Neolithic age until 238 B.C. when Sardinia was brought under the Roman Empire.
The Carignano quality in the Sulcis is excellent not only for the colour, for structure and alcoholic richness of the obtained wine, but also for the tenderness of its extrative components: from the tannic ones to the acid titrant patrimony which reveals itself temperate and elegant going from the aromatic to the spicey, from the glycerine moods to all the rest.
These wines represent the true nature of Sardinia in its most ancient form. It’s rare to find such honest and original wines that embody the region from which they are made.
Colour: deep ruby red.
Perfume: intensely fruity with a liquorice finish.
