Barrua Isola dei Nuraghi Carignane 2016

Delectable Wine
9.1

Crushed wild berries, violets, incense and sweet spices lift up from the 2016 Barrua. It is silky in texture with a polished display of red and black fruits, well balanced by tactile mineral notes that form toward the close. Hints of fine tannin linger throughout the pretty, purple-tinged finale. The 2016 could use another year or two to flesh out a bit, but I expect that it will always be a more lifted and leaner expression of Barrua. This is a blend of 70% Carignan, 10% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2021)

Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi Carignane 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2018 Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi mixes crushed violets with hints of blackberry and spice to form an alluring bouquet. This is a feminine and understated effort, showcasing floral-laced woodland berries, minerals and juicy acids. It tapers off clean and poised with lingering notes of sweet plum and licorice. While this vintage doesn’t show the power that I usually associate with this wine, it is a well-balanced expression that will excel at the dinner table. (Eric Guido, Vinous, March 2021)

Barrua 10th Anniversario Isola dei Nuraghi Carignane 2015

This Sardinian wine - the Carignano grape, mainly - is extremely dark and smells of tart, red fruit and a strong herbal accent. It’s really a wonderful nose. The palate comes on a bit riper, but not much. The acidity is quite fresh and racy, while the tannins are firm enough, but do not get in the way. Pair this wine with salami. — 7 months ago
