A Wine Spectator Magazine Top 100 Wine, the Montessu is an intensely fruity, elegant, full-bodied blend of 60% Carignano, 10% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot.
The Montessu is deep ruby red to the eye, and intensely fruity with a pleasant licorice finish on the palate. It is an elegant wine with a full mouth feel and a long finish.
Agripunica is a joint venture betewwn the Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Group, Sardinian winery Cantina di Santadi, Santadi’s President Antonello Pilloni and the legendary Tuscan consulting oenologist Giacomo Tachis.
It was really Dr. Tachis who first thought about the Sardinia and Carignano match and he persuaded all the others in order to produce a fantastic Carignano wine.
“An elegant version, with Asian five-spice powder and cherry blossom notes wafting through flavours of black raspberry preserves, bresaola and cured tobacco. Long and supple, presenting a mineral-tinged finish. Carignano, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2021. 12,500 cases made.”

“Deep ruby. Enticing aromas of flint, underbrush, wild herbs and red cherry on the spicy nose. Then rich, deep and dense with polished tannins and a multilayered and surprisingly complex personality for this wine. Finishes with outstanding length and noteworthy grip, while featuring a leafy echo that adds further complexity. One of the most refined versions of Montessu I’ve ever had. This is a complex blend of Carignano, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.”
