  4. Perdera Monica di Sardegna DOC

A blend of 90% Monica, 5% Carignano, and 5% Bovale Sardo grown in the Perdera vineyard, the grapes are harvested in September and fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the grapes' fresh, fruit-forward aromas. Following this, the wine is refined in French oak to create a smoother texture and add subtle complexity.

Tasting Notes

Ruby-red in color, aromas of ripened cherries and red fruits complement deeper tones of cassis and black pepper.  On the palate, firm tannins and integrated acidity make for good structure and a long finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with pizza, tomato sauces, bruschetta, or even terrine de foie gras.
