About Agricola Punica

Giacomo Tachis is almost single-handedly responsible for not only the creation of Super Tuscan styled wines, but for helping the region create the market... around it. He has consulted on hundreds of similar projects from the 1970s until his death in February of 2016. In the 1980s Giacomo had many projects already underway in Tuscany and his eye went to the island of Sardinia as the next place to explore for great winemaking. This region was already a place where great wines were being made and he wanted to dive right in. During one of his visits to southwestern Sardegna – in a region called Sulcis – Giacomo found the right place to execute his plan of great Sardinian winemaking. In collaboration with an existing winery called Cantina di Santadi, Giacomo Tachis started to play around with the native Carignano grape and began making local wines to better understand their nature. He saw huge potential in blending the Carignano grape with other varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon which he would soon start doing. It took a few decades, but finally Tachis was able to join the Tuscan style with that of Sardinia and in 2002 the famous Sassicaia family invested in Agricola Punica.

Bosco del Merlo

Bosco del Merlo’s name derives from the beautiful oak forests that are native to northeast Italy, and this expansive estate borders a nature park and unfurls... across more than 220 acres of prime winemaking terroir. Nestled in the hills bordering Friuli and the Veneto, Bosco del Merlo sits equidistant between the breezes rolling off the Adriatic Sea and the Carnic Prealps, the limestone mountain range that stretches through Friuli-Venezia Giulia into the Dolomites. This location gifts Bosco del Merlo with beneficial temperature variations, pure sunlight, and “caranto” soils, a mix of clay and limestone, all attributes that have made this region prime winemaking territory since Roman times. Bosco del Merlo was founded in 1977 by three brothers, Carlo, Lucia, and Roberto Paladin, who rely on Bosco del Merlo’s natural beauty to make the wines at this family-owned estate. Bosco del Merlo crafts a full range of affordable and delicious wines, including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Verduzzo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Refosco, and each bottling blends terroir and tradition in unforgettable flavor profiles.
