Intense ruby red with an undertone typical of Monica. Vinous, intense, characteristic. Round, final aftertaste almost tending to sweetness, a typical feature of erect-shrub grown Monica grapes.
FOOD MATCHES: Traditional pasta dishes dressed with tomato sauce, tasty fish stews, slices of
grilled tuna fish, stewed lamb, pecorino cheese, medium matured.
"The 2009 Isola dei Nuraghi Perdera is fabulous. Layers of dark fruit, herbs, spices, and minerals flow from this exuberant, medium to full-bodied offering. Hints of smoke and tar add further nuance on the finish. This is a hugely rewarding wine for the money. Perdera is a blend of 90% Monica, 5% Carignano and 5% Bovale Sardo. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014. "
