Bordeaux meets Rhone in Southern Italy!.....

Hi Everyone,

You know how excited I get when I’m madly in love with a new wine! Well, I am just tickled to have stumbled upon this gorgeous red. Piero Incisa della Roccheta is the proprietor of the famed Super Tuscan, Sassicaia. He has been making headlines with his innovative new projects in Sardinia and Patagonia. His wines are known to age 30+ years, with the class of a First Growth Bordeaux. He has this incredible property called Agricola Punica on the island of Sardinia, which grows some of the oldest Carignan vines in the world, along with Cabernet, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
Many of you are familiar with a pricier wine from this estate- BARRUA, which is like a glorious Chateauneuf du Pape meets Bordeaux. Big, chewy tannins, high acidity leading to dense blackberry fruit with a persistent finish. The nose has a hint of anise, smoke, and tart raspberry. Serious, Serious wine. Sold elsewhere for $30+! LIMITED………..

Montessu 2005
$24.99/ 2 for $40
