Have you ever tried a really fancy orange juice? The sort you find in the specialty imports section of the artisanal grocery store. Maybe it’s Cara Cara orange, or some cultivar native to just one village in the mountains outside Seville. The aroma that juice gives off is the primary note of this Sardinian wine made from the curious Monica vine. Further notes of cranberry, Guatemalan coffee bean, clove and cinnamon offer thought-provoking depth. The palate offers ripe berries like strawberry and cranberry, more exotic spices like coriander, mustard seed, turmeric and tamarind, all in conversation with that juicy, ever-present orange note towards a mouthwatering finish. No one knows for sure what branch of the vine family Monica belongs to, but we do know it arrived in Sardinia in the 14th century at - where else - a monastery full of French monks. Today the grape isn’t found anywhere else, but has made a comfortable home on this topographically diverse and culturally blended island, offering a brighter, friendlier counterpoint to Sardinia’s more famous imported variety. The Pala family makes just about every kind of wine Sardinia makes, but I bet that at the end of the day, you’d see this Monica open on their kitchen counter.
