Importer notes: "Perdera, meaning 'place of many stones,' is made from Monica, a grape that grows exclusively on the island of Sardinia and gives soft, easy-drinking wines with ample fruitiness. Some experts believe that Monica came from Spain but a genetic link has yet to be found. Monica is widely planted, easy to drink, and is very popular in Sardinia. Perdera is 90% Monica, 5% Carignano, and 5% Bovale Sardo, aged in neutral barrels and cement vats to preserve Monica’s varietal characteristics. The wine shows red fruit aromas and flavors of cherries and plums with floral notes and spices. Perdera is juicy with bright acidity and low tannins. Food Pairing: Monica is soft and fruity with low levels of tannins making it an ideal red wine to pair with dark fish. An ideal match would be grilled tuna or salmon with a garnish of herbs or swordfish stewed with tomatoes and saffron. Served chilled, Monica will also elevate an outdoor meal of porchetta."
