The intense ruby red color of this wine is typical of the Monica grape. Persistent aromas of ripened cherry, cassis, black pepper carry through to the palate and are followed by sweet hints of chocolate and firm tannins. Very vibrant, rich and rustic.
An excellent wine with spicy food, pasta with tomato or meat sauces, casseroles, and medium aged cheeses.

The 2012 Monica di Sardegna Perdera is a great value wine. Made with 90% Monica and smaller parts Carignano and Bovale, this is a medium-bodied red with easy fruit nuances and fresh acidity on the close. It should be consumed within the next 24 months and would taste great next to a plate of potato gnocchi with melted gorgonzola.
