The Argiolas family created the Iselis project to connect their winery to different charities around the world. Recently, Iselis funded the construction of medical centers in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Iselis Rosso is a blend of Monica, Carignano, and Bovale Sardo aged in French barriques.

Tasting Notes

Monica grows exclusively on the island of Sardinia and gives soft, easy drinking wines with lots of red-berried fruitiness. Iselis Rosso blends Monica with Carignano, which provides color and structure, and Bovale Sardo, which contributes perfume and acidity. Aging in French barriques gives the wine roundness and a hint of vanilla.

Food Pairing

Monica is soft and fruity with low levels of tannins, making it an ideal red wine to pair with dark fish. An ideal match would be grilled tuna or salmon with a garnish of herbs or swordfish stewed with tomatoes and saffron. Served chilled, Monica will also elevate an outdoor feast of porchetta.
