Dark appearance, purple hue. Super briary. The gose of the wine realm as it is very herbal in all facets. Unexpected and very niche when paring with food. Two unfamiliar varietals here for me.

Awesome spice, nice acid, Rhône varietal aromatics abound. Great bargain /food wine.

Coriscan grapes Nielluccio & Sciacarello star in this fresh red blend. Hot days, cool maritime night breezes on an old olive orchard.

I was really rooting for this wine. My grandmother Julia was Corsican, after all. But I was very disappointed. I think this went through ML in the bottle. It had noticeable carbonation and the fruit was virtually non existent. The bottle sat partial for a day, and surprise surprise, the CO2 is gone and wouldn't you know, some lovely fruit appeared. I'm sure this was a terrific wine going into the bottle, but was it filtered? How was the bottling sanitation? That first impression was a very poor one

Almost a mirror image of a Leon Barral Faugeres. At least the brett was exactly the same (in a good way).
