Santadi Monica di Sardegna "Antigua" 2004

From one of Sardegna's great cooperatives comes this blend of 85% Monica di Sardegna and 15% Carignano (both, along with Cannonau, originally from Spain). Ruby red to purple in color; earthy aromas of cherries and blackberries with hints of camphor; palate of blueberries with a peppery spice quality like an Australian Shiraz. Bright acidity and well structured with a soft finish. Very interesting, great value.
