Made from a blend of Niellucci, Syrah and Grenache. Nielluci is genetically identical to Sangiovese but to the Corsicans, it is a native grape. Very interesting as Corsican wines often are. The nose has raisins, and spice along with a bit of sweet red currants. On the palate, this is quite tannic so perhaps it is just young and will develop.It has a sweet tart quality which is fun. Raisined cherries with a slight chocolate note. Long finish. This retails for $16 and is probably more interesting than great, but it is solid. Seemingly grown in hot conditions, it would work with or without food, but it probably is better served with a slight chill to it. Great gift for wine geek friends without breaking the bank.
