Tasting Notes

Nielluccio - Sciaccarello is an important blended wine made on the French island of Corsica. Both varieties are widely planted, and reflect the island's Italian heritage: Nielluccio is perhaps best known by its Tuscan name Sangiovese, and Sciaccarello is also planted there under the name Mammolo. Together, the two make a savory, herbal wine with a touch of rusticity.

    I tried Corsican wine for the first time about 3 years ago, it was this wine in fact, and I fell in love with it immediately. Fresh herbs, red berries, and bearing a tart and juicy edge, this is slightly reminiscent of a bright Rosso from Tuscany. Spectacular and vibrant it is fermented in stainless steel and cement tanks and does not see a speck of oak. Trust me when I say the wines from this island are worth seeking out. Fantastic with grilled, charred meats during BBQ season. If you're trying them for the first time, Jean-Charles Abbatucci sets the bar high.
