The manual harvest, carried out between late August and early September, starts at the first daylight to preserve the typical varietal notes of the grapes used that come from the mainly sandy soils of the coastal area. The grapes arrive in the cellar on small boxes protected by dry ice and vinified with cryvinification techniques in an environment protected from oxidation and conveyed whole into the press, where under conditions of inert atmosphere under cold, they are mashed up to 0.25 atm obtaining an excellent must.
The subsequent static settling allows us to inseminate selected yeasts on clear must; the fermentation, controlled at 16 ° C, is then prolonged by keeping the wine in refinement on the fermentation lees for about 40 days by continuously stirring the bottom, after which it is left to refine in steel tanks for about 2 and a half months.
The subsequent blend between the two varieties and a further refinement of 3 months in small tanks of reinforced concrete completes the natural maturation and stabilization of the Samas which is not treated with clarifications or intermediate filtrations.

 

Agricola Punica

Agricola Punica was born from a joint venture in the 70s and 80s between the Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Group, the Cantina di Santadi, Antonello Pilloni, president of the latter winery and the legendary Tuscan winemaker Giacomo Tachis. It was the latter to think of Sardinia and convinced everyone that they could produce a fantastic wine from the grapes grown in Sulcis. Since his first visit to Sardinia, Tachis immediately became aware of the potential qualities of this area. In the mid-1980s he began offering his advice to the Sardinian regional wine consortium and then especially to the Cantina di Santadi and Argiolas. Thanks to the intertwining of these collaborations and to the mutual and profound esteem with the managers of the Tenuta San Guido and the Cantina di Santadi, the idea of ​​Agripunica was born, with the aim of creating once again an excellence in the national and international wine world . In 2002, AgriPunica purchased a 170-hectare farm consisting of two estates: Barrua and Narcao, located in the south-western part of Sardinia, in an area known as Basso Sulcis. The wines are called Isola dei Nuraghi IGT, in reference to the ancient stone towers built by the Nuragic civilization present on the island from the Neolithic period until 238 BC, when Sardinia passed under the Roman Empire. The vineyards located in Barrua and Narcao are characterized by 70 hectares divided between native varieties and some well-known French varieties. The soils are very deep and stony with an average quantity of clay. The south-western corner of Sardinia represents the ideal environment for the production of great red berried wines. Winters are mild and summers hot and dry. The great brightness allows the grapes to reach a level of maturity such that the polymerization of the tannins begins even before the harvest. "It is precisely the amount of light that makes this region unique." The sun contributes to the excellent ripening of the bunches, especially the extraordinary influence of the sea regulates the excessive heat and stabilizes the climate, a determining aspect, Dr. Tachis has always underlined. We are not sure about the introduction of wine grapes in Sulcitana Sardinia, but we have reason to think about the Phoenicians. In the distant past, these vines were little followed, then, with the advent of the Denominations of Origin and with the regulation of "disciplinary" of DOC productions, they even had to undergo a "tent" training system to obtain disproportionate quantities and not appropriate to the qualitative result. Nowadays the autochthonous vines have found their perfect habitat, very valid, excellent in terms of quality, the wine they produce has found the right hands that artistically, technically and physiologically model these plants. The quality of the autochthonous red berried grapes in the Basso Sulcis is excellent not only for color, for structure, for alcoholic richness of the wine obtained, but for the softness of its extractive components: from tannins to the contained and elegant acidometric heritage, to the aromatic, spiced, glycerin and all the rest.
