"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. " (WA)

Winery Notes:
A blend of 90% Monica, 5% Carignano and 5% Bovale Sardo grown in the Perdera vineyard. The grapes are harvested in early October and fermented in glass-lined cement tanks. After fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for five to six months in order to achieve extra elegance and consistent structure.

Tasting Notes
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.
