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.

    This scintillating Corsican rose is blended from three varieties, right? Everyone knows Grenache of course. But unless you study wine with due diligence you might not know, or recall from your memory blanks, that Niellucciu was originally brought to Corsica from Pisa in the 12th century, and is actually Sangiovese, or that Sciaccarellu is an ancient aromatic grape first grown in Tuscany, where it is better known as Mammolo, from its memorable scent of ‘viola mammola’, or violets. Now that we know all that we can better appreciate the true beauty and personality of this crisp and delightfully fragrant rose, redolent of orchard fruits, cherries wild maquis and hmm…violets. Enjoy!
