K&L Notes

A warm weather superstar, this is 100% Vermentinu. Domaine Petroni lies on the eastern shore of Corsica near Lake Diane, one of the great sources for oysters and mussels on the island. Founded in 1885 and run by the Ramazotti brothers, the vineyards are planted on sandy and clay soils overlooking the Mediterranean. Their rosé was one of our great success stories this year, but the white and red have made great strides as well.

    I'm always on the lookout for a new and interesting white wine that breaks my preconceived categories, and this is it! Yes, this is made with Vermentino, which is not a new varietal, but it takes on a beautiful new expression here. Poised with delicate floral aromatics and taught acidity, the wine also exhibits soft ripe pear and apricot notes. It is excellent with shellfish, but I wouldn't hesitate to try it with a variety of other foods.

    How awesome is it when you're tasting wine that is unique, interesting and delicious only to find out it's less than $15? This is exactly my experience with the Petroni blanc. The quality vs. price ratio on this wine is out of control. It has tons of citrus and tropical notes. It's got that very angular acidity that's particular to Vermentino, but not harsh or overly done. Lots of interesting spice notes tucked away into dark little corners. How much more French Regional can you get than something like this? Dang it, I'm so into this.

    Looking for a nice fun, easy drinking white? Well, look no further, Domaine Petroni's Corse Blance may be the answer. The acidity on this wine is bright and well balanced. Crisp and packed with a light tropical finish. You don't want to miss out on this one.
