Corse Sartène Rouge 2020

£17.50

A distinctive taste of Corsica

A blend of indigenous Corsican grapes, Nielluccio (60%) and Sciacarello (20%), along with Syrah (20%). Each parcel of grapes, picked at optimum maturity, is vinified separately. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts with daily pumping over plus two or three punch downs. The temperature is controlled at between 24 and 26°C and then macerated on the skins for 28 days to obtain maximum extraction of polyphenols. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is held in tank for 12 to 18 months before bottling.

Fresh, vibrant red cherry fruit with a herby edge on the nose, the palate is fleshy and characterful with a hint of Italian rusticity and some balancing structure. A tasty, country red with just a touch of tannin.
