Monica di Sardegna DOC Superiore "Don Efisio"
Via Oristano, 6/A, 09170 Oristano OR, Italia
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Monica. One of the first red grape varieties introduced in Sardinia. The variety finds in the valley of Oristano a good distributional area thanks
to the nearness of the sea and the typically Mediterranean climate, where its medium and sparse bunches of grapes achieve perfect ripeness, creating a fresh wine with good structure and high drinkability.
