Patrimonio, Corsica

Domaine Marengo

Appolonia Patrimonio Vermentino 2016

It's interesting: the deliciousness of this wine comes from its understatedness. The nose was clean, but did not offer much in terms of aromatics. On the palate, the flavor of apples was predominant, with flavors of raw honey on the back end, despite it being a dry wine. Flavors in wine tend to be more subtle as they age, which likely explains the understated nature of this one. But man, was this one good! 100% Vermentino. 6/7/22. — a month ago

Domaine U Stiliccionu

Kalliste Ajaccio Sciacarello/Nielluccio 2015

A light wine that at the same time is very complex and earthy. This mix of Sangiovese with local grapes tastes like no other wine, and is quite extraordinary. The nose is remarkably earthy and fragrant, while the flavor is almost like Poulsard or Trousseau, but with a remarkable body and earthiness that would never be present in those light wines. — a month ago
