2012 Agricola Punica Montessu Isola dei Nuraghi IGT

Carignan Blend, Carignan more

7/23/2015 - NineteenEightyTwo Likes this wine: 88 points

Light cardinal-amaranth color, slightly cloudy. This had a nose of tart red berries, herbs, and exotic spices. On the palate, this is light-bodied and elegant, with bright red fruit flavors and a touch of the limestone-infused clay soil underlying this area. Fairly acidic at this point, the wine can stand up to a variety of richer and spicier dishes. However, I'd be interested to taste this again in a few years once the acid recedes and more of the fruit and tertiary flavors emerge.

Double decanted, heavy sediment. Deep purple. Big nose of prunes and graphite. Rich, full-bodied flavors of plums, cherries and blackberries. Incredibly long aftertaste. Should be good for several more years.

Day 2: Nose has faded. Flavors are softer, and wine seems to be more integrated. Aftertaste not as long. Still a very nice wine.

Deep medium ruby color. Lots of secondary complexity happening on the nose- black pepper, anise, cassis, tea leaf, crushed stone, violet. The fruit has emerged nicely and is open and full- black cherry and cassis, draped seamlessly with black olive, dark spice and mineral notes. Fleshy smooth tannins, nicely balanced medium acidity, with length on the finish. Excellent.

A beautiful nose...still a bit tannic but nice fruit that can hold for a few more years. I would hang on for an other couple of years before having another.

Deep rich color to the rim. Strong bold legs. Elegant and belies the 14.5 ABV. Silky smooth on the palate with dark chocolate, fruit and tobacco. Palate while big was not over bearing. Just a great pleasant wine with good full mouth feel and some oak. Balanced acidity and tannins.

Purple color in the glass, slightly dusty looking. Nose of kirsch, fertilizer, tobacco and plum. Flavors of berries, cherries and plums. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold.

Very dark color, medium body, lots of black fruits and spices with dark mocha, balanced and extracted, medium finish
Very nice wine from Sardinia and ready to go, probably at its peak time now

Lighter than expected, but good. Would not wait full term to drink, not an aging wine for the cellar.

Only lightly tannic, the cork was hardly stained at all. Despite that it's a nice deep purple color. A more minerally/earthy wine, some hints of cherry but overall not much fruit to speak of. Interesting wine, but not one likely to improve with age. Will keep around a bottle just to see if I'm right.

Still quite tannic and forbidding even from half bottle, so I think this will come round and when the tannins recede (hope they will) benefit from the fruit that is undoubtedly there. Cassis, dark cherry, cedar, vanilla.

Dark ruby purple. Ripe black cherry fruit, without the raisiny notes of the '06. Still fairly tight and certainly did better with an hour of airing.

Dense ruby purple with moderate sediment. Very aromatic, Ripe, almost raisiny cherry fruit with a finish of sweet new oak. Comes together quite nicely.

I agree with Lilja's tasting notes almost entirely, except that I think it deserves a higher score. After an hour in the decanter, was quite enjoyable, almost had a grenache/CdP profile to it with the cherries, earth, funk and mild licorice.

Soft, dark, fruit with a streak of soft tannins and acidity. This is definitely a modern style wine, but I've always found this bottle interesting and there aren't exactly a lot of Carignan based wines around.

Dinner at Terrace Italia, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Wine definitely requires decanting for 3-4 hours. While pop and pour immediately shows characteristics of dark chocolate, black cherries with nose slightly muted, it remained acidic and somewhat tannic. With each passing 20 minutes the wine improved to ultimately become a silky creamy balanced wonderful complex wine

2014 Italian Wine Tasting Event (Allesia's Ristorante Italiano - Mesa, AZ): Another wine that was difficult for me to score. I love Carignan when it is done well. This wine is to be experienced, not tasted. The silky mouth-feel is way past its price point of $30/btl retail. Though, the structure is missing balance. Decent acidity and only medium tannins leave a hole... that I was able to get past, others may not. I am a sucker for this kind of profile. Fruit forward spicy palate with black cherry, blackberry and plum. Medium long finish of mild dark chocolate. Definitely not a food wine. OK, maybe it should be more like 87, but I just can't bring myself to do it...

Even though I poured it through a mini-decanter and left it over an hour, this was so tannic that it left my mouth dry. Interesting nose and plenty of fruit on the palate, but this needs another couple of years, I think. Pleasant enough but not particularly memorable.
