Refreshing and delicious, this blend of Sardinian grapes—40% Monica, 30% Cannonau and 30% Carignano—opens with aromas of rose, wild berry and a whiff of Mediterranean scrub. The vibrant palate offers juicy red cherry, raspberry and a hint of baking spice alongside bright acidity. A saline note backs up the finish.
