Wine AdvocateThe IGT Isola dei Nuraghi 2011 Barrua is a hearty blend of 85% Carignano, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot that is aged up to 18 months in oak. The wine boasts a compelling international signature that borrows from the great wines of Bolgheri and Bordeaux. The fruit reaches perfect maturity with luscious ripeness and deep aromatic intensity. At the back are pretty spice, tobacco and dark chocolate tones that build the wine's personality. Barrua will hold five years or more.

James SucklingLots of blueberry, shaved chocolate and cedar character on the nose follows through to a full body with soft and juicy tannins and a long aftertaste of almond, hazelnut and berries. Best ever from here. Drink or hold.
