“A fifty-fifty blend of Carignano and Monica, this savory red opens with aromas of Mediterranean scrub, wild berry and a whiff of sea breeze. The smooth juicy palate doles out raspberry compote, ripe black cherry and star anise alongside lithe tannins.” KO
The wine is composed of a blend of Monica and Carignano. Monica, indigenous to the Sardinia is has a similar profile to Pinot Noir in term of character and approach when drinking. The sea adds a little spice and hints Mediterranean herbs in the wine.
It's macerated in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with the addition of selected yeasts. After fermentation, a light clarification is followed by refinement in steel tanks and bottle.
Lively ruby red color. Intense aroma of red fruit, spice, and herbs. Dry, with a long finish. The pairs well with pizza, pasta, burgers, salamis or thanks to its medium body and soft tannins. Organic
Great taste and finish

Ok as-is - Just Not Yet Ready - Initially, it did not taste good. But after about 30 minutes of breathing, it softened up and was quite drinkable. Was then also good with food.I am planning on holding on to these for at least a year of two before opening another one. Anticipating it will be a good value for the price after some aging.
