"Lively, deep ruby red with complex scents of mature red fruits (mainly black cherry), spices, notes of liquorice and hints of myrtle. An elegant wine that shows exceptional workmanship." —importer
"I thought the 2011 was the best ever from this stylish wine producer in Sardinia. But the 2012 is clearly better showing vivid aromas of currants, dried cherry, rosemary, citrus and dried chili. Full body, dense but not heavy center palate, and a long savory, mushroom, mahogany and berry aftertaste. A blend of local varieties with a hint of international ones. Yeah. Drink or hold." —JamesSuckling.com

"Deep, bright ruby-red. Aromas of ripe red cherry, tobacco and loam, with a smoky cocoa overtone. Coconutty, sweet and fleshy in the mouth, offering tactile red berry and aromatic herb flavors of noteworthy volume and depth. Finishes long and creamy. A richer, more concentrated wine than the 2013 Montessu, but I found this vintage of Barrua almost too ripe and international in style. Drinking window: 2017 - 2022." —Ian D'Agata, Vinous
