'Sciaccarellu’ is an obscure, vigorous red variety long-cultivated on Corsica that translates as ‘the grape that bursts under the teeth’, notable for its juiciness, thick skins and fairly low tannins. It actually originated in central Italy where it is today almost extinct and known as Mammolo, or ‘shrinking violet’, the bashful one, perhaps because the lush grapes try to hide furtively beneath a canopy of vines. For being such a delicately-hued wine (conjuring a school of pink pearl erasers swimming by), this charming rosé conveys an amazing array of flavors, from fresh-cut strawberries to juicy raspberries to white peaches, with a bit of spice, salinity and mouth-quenching acidity to keep every thirst satisfied. And at under ten dollars, it is a super buy!
