Your consider it ALL with Wine:
Praja’ is the Sardinian word for the Italian ‘spiaggia’ or ‘beach. 100% Monica.
A light red wine that takes well to a slight chilling down; it’s dry, moderate alcohol,
and earthy, with just a touch of fruit including cherries and strawberries. Organic.
Teaching Moment: Monica? Monica is a grape variety found exclusively on Sardinia,
off the west coast of Italy. Despite its relatively unknown status, it is one of the island's
most common varietals, and makes simple wines designed for everyday drinking.
Monica wines, like Cardedu, tend to be medium-bodied with gentle tannins
and flavors of red berries and herbs, often with an earthy overtone.
