    “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, an indigenous grape that is known for its elegant and velvety tannins. Carignano thrives in the local climate and well-exposed sandy soil that is a mixture of limestone and clay. International varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot also thrive in the area’s optimal conditions. Production per hectare is low (about 5,000 liters/ha). Hand harvested grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermentation. Each variety is vinified separately, and the wine is transferred to French oak barriques (40% new oak, 60% best second passage barrels) with a medium toast. The wine ages for about 18 months then rests for 40-50 days in cement tanks and 6 months in bottle. The final composition varies each year based on the specific conditions of each harvest.

    ABV: 15%

    Varietals: Carignano (85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), Merlot (5%)
