Argiolas Perdera 2013

Argiolas Perdera 2013

SKU 30681


Perdera is 90% Monica, 5% Carignano, and 5% Bovale Sardo, aged in neutral barrels and cement vats to preserve Monica's varietal characteristics. The wine shows red fruit aromas and flavors of cherries and plums with floral notes and spices. Perdera is juicy with bright acidity and low tannins. 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 meal of porchetta.

Wine AdvocateThe Monica grape does not produce high-scoring wines, but this is one of the best expressions and best vintages I have ever tasted. The 2013 Monica di Sardegna Perdera is a zesty and playful wine that delivers a generous load of primary aromas. The bouquet offers direct and immediate tones of sour cherry, forest berry and white pepper corn. The wine shows many of the edgy and rustic qualities you often encounter within Italy's rich patrimony of indigenous grapes. This wine is 90% Monica with smaller parts Carignano and Bovale Sardo aged in neutral oak and cement.
