A new Sassicaia from carignan? We meet the winemaker at Agricola Punica

Agricola Punica is a new vineyard in Sardinia with close ties to the legendary Tenuta San Guido (Sassicaia) in Tuscany. In Sardinia they make two wines, “entry level” Montessu and the more ambitious Barrua. Winemaker Sebastiano Rosa was in Stockholm to present his wines. BKWine’s Roland Eriksson was there.

Agricola Punica is a partnership including the family behind the Tenuta San Guido (Sassicaia) and a wine cooperative in Sardinia. They started the project in 2002 and have set the goal high. The tasting included both their base wine, Montessu, and a whole series of vintages of the prestige wine Barrua. So, will it become a new Sassicaia?
