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.
