Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Although it is closer to Italy, it has been under French rule since 1769. Vetriccie is the local wicker that grows widely around the vineyards of Corsica. This estate is located in the town of Aghione, on the Costa Serena. The vineyards are owned since 1966 by the Barcelo Family. Daniel Barcelo -after making wine in several new world wine countries- came back to the family estate. Daniel also established a wine estate in New-Mexico where he married an American woman before returning back to Corsica
Tasting notes: The Nielluciu (Sangiovese in Corsica) gives the dark color, the Sciacarellu (Pollera Nera in Corsica) brings crispiness as the Grenache gives the fruitiness. Light pink almost clear with floral aromas like cranberry, blackberry and blackcurrant. Soft attack to the palate with generous fruit, explosion of berries to a lingering finish.
