"Contini's 2003 Barrile is a blend of 85% Nieddera and 15% Caddiu, both indigenous varieties, aged in French oak. It is a stunningly beautiful wine packed with sweet, plummy fruit that somehow manages to balance its notable intensity and richness with a weightless palate presence. This Sardinian beauty should drink well for another decade. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018." 92 points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate
"It is a wine with outstanding organoleptic characteristics obtained from a skilled blending of Nieddera (85% ca) with other indigenous varieties, among which are Caddiu, an extremely crisp and fragrant variety. Barrile is initially refined in barriques for 10-12 months, and later in bottles for at least 6 months. Its aroma is intense and fragrant, its taste is full, soft and suavely spicy from the wood." -Winery
"The Contini winery, founded by Salvatore Contini in 1898, ranks among the oldest and most prestigious wine producing establishments in Sardinia. Both grandchildren and great grandchildren of the founder are passionately and competently dedicated to the accurate selection of vineyards and grapes, to wine-making and maturing, in accordance with the most ancient local traditions."
"The size of the estate, which is still family-run, has allowed the Continis to follow with dedication and skill the accurate selection of vineyards and grape varieties, as well as the vinification and maturing processes, based on the most ancient local traditions. "
"The Azienda Vinicola Attilio Contini is located at Cabras, a town in mid-western Sardinia, less than 10 kilometres far from Oristano, the main town in the province. With more than 10,000 inhabitants, Cabras is the third biggest centre in the province of Oristano. The town lies on the banks of the lake which bears the same name. The lake of Cabras is the main feature characterising this region. The rich environmental, historical and cultural heritage makes this a fascinating and picturesque area of the Sardinian west coast." -Winery
