Cardedu, Praja Monica di Sardegna 2020

$22.00
Excl. tax

The name Praja is Sardinian for "beach", and that is an excellent place to drink this refreshing red. It would benefit from being served with a slight chill too. It is light in body and color with an earthy and spicy edge supported by a touch of red berry

The vineyards of Cardedu (car-DAY-do) are in the area of Ogliastra, the most mountainous and least populous province on the island; a land of turquoise shimmer and ragged-dry cliffs. Here on the southeast coast of Sardegna the Loi family grows and makes wines from the native varieties Vermentino, Cannonau, and Monica. Cardedu is one of the islands better known (in Sardegna, at least) traditional producers. The Loi family doesn’t think of itself as a natural wine producer; they are not in that hipster 'giro'/circle. Yet, all wines are fermented with native yeasts in temperature controlled tanks (if needed), and there’s dry farming without use of herbicides or pesticides.
