Praja “Cardedu” (car-DAY-do), 100% Monica varietal, in a remote area, South East Sardegna, sparsely populated mountainous region is one of the better known wine regions of Sardegna. The Loi family doesn’t think of itself as a natural wine producer; they don't think of themselves as "hip". Yet, all wines are fermented with native yeasts in old cement tanks, and then rested in cement for 5 months before bottled unfiltered.
dry farming (no forced irrigation) without use of herbicides or pesticides.
Monica is the varietal that is said to have Spanish origins (nope we hadn't heard of it before either). Gorgeous cranberry red color, island seaside red berries, drink a bit chilled with seafood. Bright minerality with rustic undertones.
Grapes are grown in San Vito, Sardinia in soil composed of crumbling granite and red quartz, 10 year old vines
