Winemaker's Notes

Made from 90% Monica, 5% Carignano and 5% Bovale Sardo

Intense ruby red in color which is typical of Monica. Persistent nose of ripened fruit. On the palate the wine is round with firm tannins and a sweetish aftertaste of the varietal. Very vibrant and rustic. Recommended with roasted meats, particularly pork.

Critical Acclaim

"Readers looking for a southern Rhone-like red should check out the 2005 Perdera IGT, a blend of 90% Monica and equal parts Carignano and Bovale Sardo. Aged in French oak for six months prior to bottling, it exhibits dense garrigue, pepper, cassis, and cherry characteristics intermixed with a loamy soil undertone. Corpulent, fleshy, mouthfilling, and savory, it should be drunk over the next 1-2 years. "
