Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi IGT play

Region: Italy / Sardinia / Sulcis Meridionale

Barrua was first released in the 2002 vintage. The grapes are sourced from the Barrua and Narcao vineyards. Carignano, of Spanish origin and the blend’s predominant grape, has found its perfect terroir in the warm, well-exposed Sardinian terrain. Bush vines are closely planted here, designed to minimize yields and maximize the wine’s concentration.

Hand harvested whole bunches are destemmed, crushed and fermented on the skins for several days in stainless steel vats. The wine is oak aged before blending and bottle aging.

Beside having all the characteristics of a great terroir the south west corner of Sardinia where Barrua and Narcao are located, has a great quality of light which makes the maturations of the grapes perfect and very complex.
