Winemaker Notes

#72 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2017

This red wine has a ruby hue with violet hints. On the nose, the wine offers aromas of red fruit (strawberries, blackcurrant and raspberries) as well as delicate spice and a light minerality. It is supple on entry to the palate with red fruit flavors and subtle roasted notes. The finish is ample with silky tannins and good length.

Perfect with grilled red meat, pizza and sheep’s milk cheese.

Wine Spectator
Lightly rustic, with bramble and dried anise notes weaving throughout. The core of violet plum sauce and raspberry coulis is pure and vibrant, extending through a lengthy finish. A fun, character-filled wine. Niellucciu, Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2019.

Domaine Petroni, Corsica, France
Founded in 1885, Domaine Petroni is located close to the lake Diana. It is an idyllic location, drenched in sunlight, overlooking the tranquillity of the Mediterranean Sea and offering all of the natural qualities needed for an exceptional wine. It is now run by the Ramazotti brothers. Its beautiful white stone building is symbolic of the tradition, natural production and respect for the environment that prevail at the estate.

A mountainous, Mediterranean island covered in vineyards, Corsica, while closer to Italy in proximity and history, is today under France's political jurisdiction. The island is home to a mix of Italian and French grapes, typically planted at high elevations. Niellucciu (Sangiovese), Sciacarellu (Mammolo), and Vermentino (Rolle) are the main grape varieties of Corsica, and account for about two thirds of all Corsican wines produced.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
