Monica di Sardegna "i Fiori", Pala 2018 (Sardinia, Italy)

Monica is actually an old Catalan grape, but these days it is almost exclusively grown in Sardinia. This one comes from a 30 year old organic vineyard in Serdiana, just north of Cagliari on the southern coast of the island. Plush and velvety with plum and baking spice.
