2018 Domaine Petroni Corse
Ah Corsica, the tiny French island where Napoleon was exiled is all white sand beaches and blue sky. Domaine Petroni has been making wine since the 1800’s in an idyllic spot overlooking the Mediterranean. This blend is made from a Corsican grape called Nielluccio that is similar to Sangiovese. It shows fresh strawberries, and raspberries, and a minerality that makes us think of long lazy days at the beach.
This wine has a ruby hue with hints of violet. The nose then offers aromas of red berries and a delicate hint of spice and minerality. Supple on the palate, notes of roasted red fruit intertwine with silky tannins and good length. Aging potential of 5 years.
The average age of vines is 25 years, so they still have youthful exuberance, but have been around the block once or twice.
