    “Barrua” is the name of the vineyard parcel within the Sulcis Iglesente region in southwest Sardinia. Grapes are sourced from the Barrua and Narcao vineyards. The Sulcis region is dominated by Carignano, the blend’s predominant grape of Spanish origin that is known for elegant and velvety tannins. Carignano has perfect terroir in the warm, well-exposed brown earth, composed of calcareous, clay and sandy soil. International varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot also thrive in the area’s optimal conditions. Bush vines are closely planted to minimize yields and maximize the wine’s concentration.

    In 2002, an extraordinary team of winemakers became convinced of an ideal connection between the land and climate of Sardinia and the Carignano grape. In that year, Agricola Punica was founded in the southwest region of the island and today produces two iconic wines based on this grape: Barrua and Montessu.Agricola Punica is an undertaking between world renowned names in the winemaking business: Dr. Sebastiano Rosa (with a 40% share), Sardinian winery Cantina Sociale di Santadi (40%), Tenuta San Guido, under the direction of Marchese Nicoló Incisa della Rocchetta (10%), Santadi president Antonello Pilloni (5%), and legendary Tuscan consulting enologist Giacomo Tachis (5%).In 2002, Agricola Punica purchased a 370-acre estate divided between two vineyard sites, Barrua and Narcao, located in Sardinia’s southwest, in an area known as Sulcis Meridionale. Though the vineyards lie within the DOC of Carignano del Sulcis, the wine falls under the IGT of Isola dei Nuraghi, which refers to the island’s ancient stone structures. The first vintage of Barrua was 2002; Montessu was first produced in 2005.
