History of Monica
The origins of monica in Sardinia, are generally considered in two different hypotheses.
The first, which also refers to the particular name of the wine, traces its introduction in Sardinia to XI century, by the Camaldolese monks.
A second theory on the other hand its introduction to the period of Spanish rule, taking as its basis the fact that in some areas of Sardinia, the wine is called Monica in Spain or Blackberry Grape.
A third theory is based instead on the fact that monica is a vine completely unknown in Spain: some winemakers believe therefore that it is a vine native.
In any case, by monica the best land in composition limestone deep on average, to hilly areas and well exposed to the sun.
