Take us to Corsica!!
We’re prepping for an upcoming class with this beauty, which comes from the southern tip of Corsica (the most southerly wine region of France 🇫🇷 ); an appellation called Corse Figari AOC.
The vineyards are farmed biodynamically (certified since 2006) and are situated on a plateau at the base of the Omu di Cagna mountain ⛰️, not far from dramatic Bonifacio cliffs rising up from the azure blue waters of the Mediterranean.
It’s made with Vermentinu (aka Rolle or Vermentino) by Clos Canarelli, devoted to producing high quality terroir-driven wines made with indigenous varieties.
This wine offers a bouquet of lemon and orange peel, white peach, crisp green apple, just-ripe pineapple, honeydew, citrus blossom, elderflower, crushed stone, arugula, and custard.
It is both vibrant and rich with a creamy mouthfeel and layered complexity. It’s absolutely delicious and we cannot wait to share it next month. — 6 months ago
You can count on consistently solid Syrahs from Cascade Cliffs. Super fruit forward with a bit of a bite. Think this will be great with laying down for a few years. Really like it! Old world element. — 3 years ago

Delightful, but needs aging. We’ll hope to try it again. — 6 months ago
The 2020 Rosato (Sangiovese) displays sweet melon and spring flowers offset by a twang of zesty citrus and flint. It’s silky-smooth, with a pleasant inner sweetness as notes of young strawberry and cherry cascade across the palate, all of which taper off wonderfully fresh. $17.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2021) — 3 years ago
Sweet smoke, mint and freshly sliced yellow apple make for a pretty bouquet as the 2021 Falanghina slowly blossoms in the glass. Its silky textures soothe the palate, as ripe orchard fruits and spice cascade throughout. This finishes with a grippy tension. Saline minerals and citrus rind pucker the cheeks. There’s a lot of character and layers packed into the crisp Falanghina. Perhaps some cellaring will reveal further depths. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2023) — 6 months ago
More savory than sweet, the 2021 Sylvaner lifts up with a cascade of dried flowers and gingery spice offset by a cooling air of dusty stone. Like tapping a mountain spring, this flows across the palate with a mineral-laden blend of crisp orchard fruit and citrus lifted by cooling acidity. The 2021 takes on a tropical air through the finish yet is tart, puckering the cheeks with residual tension as pretty inner florals and young kiwi echo throughout. This is a gorgeous style of Nossing’s Sylvaner. (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2023) — 7 months ago
This is an AMAZING dessert wine. It's fruity and citrusy and sweet (but not sticky sweet), and it has a nice undertone of vanilla that comes through. — 3 years ago
