9.0

Last suitcase wine from brought home from Corsica. On the nose, ruby grapefruit, ocean spray (real ocean, not the juice), minerals. In the mouth, very saline with citrus, white flowers and excellent minerality. Long finish. Solid wine. — 3 years ago

Domaine San Micheli

Vin de Corse Sartene Sciacarello Nielluccio Blend 2016

This wine from Corsica is really interesting. Very light in colour (local grapes) it is very Cotes du Rhône like in style. Lightly chilled it is a nice surprise. — 4 years ago

Oriu Vin de Corse Porto Vecchio Nielluccio Sciacarello 2005

Much debate about the pronunciation of “Sciacarello” which our somm helpfully settled by informing us that it’s actually “Shaka-rello”, as in Chaka Khan. Now that’s service! Anyway this was totally awesome, drinks like an aged Pinot or Nebbiolo with lots of umami notes of mushroom and teriyaki. — 3 years ago

Pumonte Vin de Corse Calvi Red Blend 2012

Vintage 2012 - wine from #corse #corsican local grapes #nielluciu and #sciaccarello The wine has very clear evolution, giving a rooftile brown rim. The smell of a stable, positive stinking! Also raspberries liquor, plums, a bit dusty impression in taste with a nice bitter at the end. The smell of the wine from these curious grapes reminded me a bit of Burgundy. — 4 years ago
