2014 Argiolas Monica di Sardegna Perdera
Region: Serdiana, Sardinia, Italy
Argiolas is one of the leading estates on the island of Sardinia, producing archetypal wines from native varietals. Antonio Argiolas, who died in 2009 at the age of 102, inherited seven acres of vines from his father in 1938 and was the first on the island to convert to modern viticulture to pursue quality over quantity. His sons, Franco and Giuseppe, replanted the vineyards in the 80s with the goal of reducing yields and focusing exclusively on Sardinian grapes. Joined by enologist Mariano Murru, the Argiolas family is today recognized as Sardinia’s leading wine producer.
Vinous says this wine is, “Dark ruby-red. Herbs and aromatic spice nuances complement red cherry and plum aromas on the enticing nose. Then bright and juicy, with lively acidity lifting the tarry blackcurrant and spicy herb flavors on the long fresh finish. Interestingly, this vibrant medium-bodied wine starts very herbal but finishes very fruity. 90/100.”
Our staff notes that Sardinian wines are totally under the radar and well worth taking a flier on!
