Lean and mean. Spritz that wouldn't budge.

Opened with no expectations having never heard of Nielluccio (France’s name for Sangiovese). The wine is singing. It has a ruby brick hue from some age in bottle. The fruits are mature with soft black plum and dried berries with lots of lavender and rosemary. There is a drapery of cool smoke and pine. Silky smooth velvety palette with an underpinning of minerals. A darker profile for France’s take on Chianti.

Красная слива, мятая черника, вареная свёкла, отголоски клубники, специи, кремень, графит, туф, соль, лёгкий жар на финише. Средне-лёгкое тело, сбалансированная кислотность, еще моложавые танины. Концентрированно и компактно, но не тяжело, слегка рустично, без особой комплексности, минерально, с хорошей внутренней энергией и честной выразительностью. Лучше чувствует себя с едой, но вполне самодостаточно и без неё.

Yum! Tasted like a cab franc/chinon to me. Little vegetal funk, light to medium bodied. Pairs well with an array of foods and also drinks nicely on its own.

Earthy, volcanic, tobacco, can lay down for many years. Tastes Italian, which makes sense since it is from Corsica!
