2014 Domaine Petroni Corse Rouge (Corsica)

SKU #1257788

Domaine Petroni is an estate on the eastern side of Corsica near Lake Diane. Lake Diane is a famous lagoon, where the local aquaculture produces gorgeous oysters and mussels. Now run by the Ramazotti brother, this idyllic location overlooks the Mediterranean with its vineyards composed of sandy and clay soils. The rouge is a blend of 50% Niellucciu, 35% Syrah and 15% Grenache. Grapes are fermented in concrete tanks and aged 12 months in stainless to preserve the fresh fruit driven aspects of the wine.

The Petroni rouge is such a remarkably friendly introduction to the exciting reds of Corsica with its brambly, blackberry fruit, cool herbal tones and stony mineral tones. It has a sweet opening note but finishes dry, with supple tannins. It has an almost Italian flare to it. Gorgeous with charcuterie, spicy sausage and funky cheeses. But don't leave out a nice veal chop or rib-eye steak.

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.
