2015 Domaine Petroni Corse Rosé (Corsica)

SKU #1257785 Wine Spectator

 Stony and brisk, with integrated acidity carrying the white cherry, white peach and bergamot notes. The lovely, unadorned finish leaves a mouthwatering feel.  (6/2016)

K&L Notes

Corsica is one of the great off-the-radar regions for wine production. The vineyards for Petroni date back to 1885 and are surrounded by the Corsican mountains to the west and the Mediterranean to the east. The winery is now in the hands of brothers Jacques and Francois Ramazotti. Like most classic rosés of this region, it is a blend of 50% Niellucciu, 35% Sciaccarellu, and 15% Grenache. How to describe Corsican rose? It is one of the finest of its kind with notes of nectarine, peach blossom, and white flowers. It is succulent with wonderful acidity and an oily mouthfeel.

Straight out of Corsica, this unique rosé is made from mainly indigenous varietals brought to us for an incredible price due to our DI relationship. This rosé personifies elegance. Aromas of rose petal, nectarine and cobblestone like minerality, lead to a rich palate of stone fruits, beautiful white cherry and white flowers. This elegant, mineral-driven rosé will be the hit of the summer in your house, coming in at under $15 a bottle.

I probably should not be writing this wine up before I buy my own case... This was my favorite wine from our recent staff tasting, and I liked it better than a lot of the "important" fifty dollar reds that we tried. I will be smashing these all summer--as long as I get down there in time to buy my box! The Petroni Rosé has a subtle strawberry fruit nose, and more than a little white pepper complexity. It is generous in the mouth, but finishes with great dry snap. It is the whole package, and at a great price!

Bar none my favorite value rosé of the season, this little gem has flavors of Seascape strawberries, white cherries and tangerine. It is succulent, stony and has brilliant balancing acidity. You would need to spend twice as much to match this quality.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
