Tasting Notes

Corsica is one of the great off-the-radar regions for wine production. The vineyards for Petroni date back to 1885 and are surrounded by the Corsican mountains to the west and the Mediterranean to the east. The winery is now in the hands of brothers Jacques and Francois Ramazotti. Like most classic rosés of this region, it is a blend of 50% Niellucciu, 35% Sciaccarellu, and 15% Grenache. How to describe Corsican rose? It is one of the finest of its kind with notes of nectarine, peach blossom, and white flowers. It is succulent with wonderful acidity and a viscous mouthfeel. (Keith Mabry, K&L French Regional Buyer)

    White flowers and light red fruit linger on the nose. Red berry flavors intermingle with peach and pleasant mineral qualities on the palate. The juiciness on this wine is so appealing, making this wine incredibly food friendly. Think antipasti, eggplant, and other Mediterranean fare. An obvious choice too as a summer sipper!

    “Rosé all day!” You’ve seen this smattered about on social media, maybe you’ve heard it shouted by pink wine enthusiasts at your local Sunday brunch spot. People go nuts for the stuff. And what's not to love? It's tasty, versatile and a great value. I am nuts about this one in particular. If you have not tried rosé from the island of Corsica, I can’t think of a better introduction than this stunner from Domaine Petroni. With its beautiful, pale pink color and exhilarating bouquet of stone fruit and flowers, I imagine myself basking in the sun somewhere in the Mediterranean with a glass of this in my hand. It is dry yet succulent, versatile with many foods or satisfying simply on its own. And it's only $12.99. We may not live in the Mediterranean but we have the Pacific Ocean and plenty of sun. Keep your fridge stocked with this gem and see where it takes you.
