MANDROLISAI DOC is a red wine denomination from the west-central part of the Italian island of Sardinia (‘Sardegna’), Italy. The DOC dates from 1982. The wine is a blend of Bovale Sardo (35% min.), Cannonau (20-35%), Monica (20-35%) and others (0-10%). The name Mandrolisai is ‘a section of the barren Barbagia hills of central Sardina between the Gennargentu mountains and Lake Omodeo, including Sorgono and five other communes (‘comuni’) in Nuoro province, and Samugheo in Oristano,’ (Burton Anderson, 1990, p292-3). The wine is mostly for early drinking (Burton Anderson, 1990, p292).
