"Iselis" Monica di Sardegna DOC Rosso 2018 - Argiolas

Monica is one of the oldest traditional Sardinian vines. It is cultivated more or less everywhere on the island and, as is often the case with Sardinian vines, it is locally called by different names. Monica di Sardegna, first of all, but also Monica di Spagna, 'which probably gives us an idea of its ancient origins, or even Uva Mora. Argiolas offers this pleasant Iselis, Monica di Sardegna DOC, produced from grapes harvested in its vineyards located in the heart of southern Sardinia. Plants rooted in soils rich in limestone, capable of bringing to maturity concentrated bunches rich in aromas. Carefully vinified and matured for about a year in oak barriques, Iselis appears in the glass with a beautiful ruby red colour. To the nose it is intense and enveloping, with notes of red fruit, morello cherry and plum in clear evidence. Then there are clear hints of vanilla and cinnamon due to the time spent in wood. In the mouth it is pleasantly harmonious and velvety, with very sweet and ripe tannins. Red fruit and spices are in perfect balance, while the finish is long and pleasant. On the table it has no problem finding the right combination. Whether it be a traditional pasta dish with sauce or a tasty fish soup. Also perfect with a simple piece of medium-aged Sardinian pecorino.

Serdiana, in the countryside of Sibiola, Sisini, Sa Tanca, Vigne Vecchie and Is Solinas. These are the five estates, covering a total of over 200 hectares, that the Argiolas family owns in southern Sardinia. These estates have been carefully chosen for their soil, exposure, climate and altitude. Each estate is different, as are the grapes that grow there and the wines that are created. The history of the Argiolas winery began in the late 1930s, when Antonio set up his new agricultural enterprise. Thanks to his commitment, for decades, the winery grew and established itself in Sardinia and beyond. This has also been the case with the arrival of his children and, today, his grandchildren. The third generation of the family. Preserving and keeping intact the wonderful Sardinian nature is an important responsibility. A daily commitment that guides the actions of the Argiolas family, every day, in every decision.
