Domaine Comte Abbatucci

Faustine Ajaccio Red Blend 2014

2014. New main varietal for me in this blend. Hard primary flavors to identify...went really well with the bbq ribs and dirty rice. Got better each drink until it was gone. That’s all I ask! — 11 days ago

Terra Santa

Ile de Beaute Vermentinu Chardonnay 2017

Let this one warm up a little from the fridge before drinking to fully appreciate. Quick wash of fruity lemon and maybe some orange flower followed by rock (limestone?) that lends an effervescent flavor on the finish. Not bad. — 16 days ago

Antoine Arena

Carco Patrimonio Nielluccio 2008

Rustic and developed. Stewed plums, medicinal black cherry, maquis herbs, muddy soil, wet stoneware pottery, tobacco and tomato leaf. Palate is intense, concentrated, and shows younger than the nose. 14% alcohol isn’t hiding, but is nearly balanced by silty tannin and juicy acidity. Rounder and darker than the Italian Sangiovese which may or may not be genetically related. Interesting wine, well paired with a casual bolognese style pasta. — 16 days ago

Domaine Giacometti

Cru des Agriates Patrimonio Rouge Nielluccio Grenache

Brought back in my suitcase from the Domaine in Corsica.... on the nose smokey dark fruit and roses. In the mouth dark spicy fruit, floral with grippy tannins, good acidity and a touch of heat. Good wine with a sense of place. Might be a tad too young. — 6 days ago

Domaine Petroni

Corse Red Blend 2015

Not sure if this measures up to all the amazing wine I drank when I was in Corsica, but it’s pretty good. On the nose, dried flowers, red fruit and brambles. In the mouth, bright and floral, earthy with some tannins. Moderate length. — 16 days ago

My string of drinking outstanding Corsican wines continues. Thanks to my bud @Todd Abrams for finding them for me. I had a glass from a bottle that was opened on Saturday. Red candy apple coating and a bit earthy. Fresh bottle. Still earth and herbs. Digging it with Family Feud. — 2 months ago
