Earthy nose. Something else that I can't place but I don't like it. Not trying to be funny or gross people out but it reminds me of poopy diapers. Took some courage to taste it but found that it wasn't quite that bad. There's some cherry, again some dirt and earthiness but just enough fruit to be drinkable. The tannins don't have much grip and the finish is quick. All in all, even for $12, I'd say not worth the money. Pass.

Deep garnet in color this wine has a wonderful nose of oak and dark fruit. In the mouth the wine bursts with black cherry and plum flavors accompanied by a nice minerality and well balanced tannins. The finish is lenghty leaving a light oak flavor with a hint of blackberry creeping in at the end.

The 2009 Isola dei Nuraghi Perdera is fabulous. Layers of dark fruit, herbs, spices, and minerals flow from this exuberant, medium to full-bodied offering. Hints of smoke and tar add further nuance on the finish. This is a hugely rewarding wine for the money. Perdera is a blend of 90% Monica, 5% Carignano and 5% Bovale Sardo. Anticipated maturity: 2010ndash;2014.

I have long been a cheerleader for Argiolasrsquo;s inexpensive reds. They are just what the marketplace needs today. The deep ruby/plum-colored 2000 Perdera, made primarily from an indigenous grape called Monica, possesses a big, smoky, earthy, peppery nose with loads of sweet berry and cherry fruit. It is a full-bodied, well-textured, mouthfilling, soft red to drink during its first 1ndash;2 years of life.

Monica di Sardegna, a grape of Spanish origin, produces a dry, ruby-red table wine on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia. This soft, easy-drinking bottle hails from Antonio Argiolas's winery, located outside of Caligari, the capital city.

The 2004 Perdera (a blend of 90% Monica, 5% Bovale Sardo, and 5% Carignan) was fermented in old oak and aged in cement prior to bottling. Deep, rich, and chewy, with loads of peppery black cherry fruit intermixed with notions of Provencal herbs, roasted meats, and earth, it is a modern version of a traditional French Cotes du Rhone.

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Intense ruby red with an undertone typical of Monica. Nose: Vinous, intense, characteristic. Palate: Round, final aftertaste almost tending to sweetness, a typical feature of erect-shrub grown Monica grapes. Food Matches: Traditional pasta dishes dressed with tomato sauce, tasty fish stews, slices of grilled tuna fish, stewed lamb, pecorino cheese, medium matured.
