Monica di Sardegna Doc Superior
The history of Monica wine is inseparably entwined in the mystery and fascinating tradition of Alghero. At the turn of the 11th century a few Spanish monks planted this grape variety in the area between Sassari and Alghero.
Under the reign of the Aragonese, it was the Camaldolesi who promoted the wine all over the rest of the island with such a degree of success, that today it is amongst the most popular red grape varieties on the island.
