Backed by a top-pedigree winemaking team, Agricola Punica is undoubtedly a producer that should be on your radar. The project is jointly owned by Sebastiano Rosa of Tenuta San Guido (of Sassicaia fame), influential Sardinian producer Santando and oenologist Giacomo Tachis. The wine falls under the IGT of Isola dei Nuraghi, which refers to Sardinia’s ancient stone edifices. Punica’s vineyards are in an area known as Sulcis Meridionale. With mild winters, hot and dry summers, and an average of seven hours’ sunlight per day, the growing conditions are superb. Punica believes the terroir here is perfectly suited to realising the potential of their star grape, Carignano (Carignan/Cariñena).
