Atzei Saragat Monica 2021

Monica di Sardegna DOC

While generally not vinified as a mono-varietal, Atzei found their sources of Monica to be exemplary on their own. One of Sardinia’s most widely planted varietals, the style is refreshing and uplifting, with a brief period in small format oak providing an extra layer of body and complexity.


As the grapes are sourced from a number of vineyards across the area of Mogoro, the wine expresses a range of elevations, exposures, soil types, and micro-climates. Coastal vineyards provide acidity and a refreshing saline character, while further inland the wines show more ripeness and structure. Soils are composed mostly of sand and volcanic sediment.


Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, 10 day maceration, 6 months in neutral French oak barrels

Tasting Note

The bouquet is intense, with enveloping notes of marasca cherry, plum and berries. The palate is soft and balanced, with hints of red fruit and well-balanced spices entwined in sweet tannins that accompany a long and pleasant finish.
