Sardinia, like Corsica, is a culture unto itself. Politically it is Italian, but culturally it has a unique identity. And you see that in its grapes: Monica grows nowhere else (it is often asserted that it was brought from Spain, but genetic analysis has debunked these claims) and works brilliantly with foods from light snacks through grilled white meats. This is lighter and juicier than the Monicas we generally see here, with friendly red fruit and delicate herbal edges.
