    Winemaker Notes

    This elegant and fresh wine is pink in colour with salmon tints and almost silvery shades. On the nose, the wine is full of aromas of redcurrants and pomegranate and a subtle veil of floral notes. The same aromas are apparent on the palate. This wine is both smooth and fresh. To be enjoyed either on its own as an aperitif or with a starter, red pepper salad, stuffed vegetables or goat’s cheese.

    Terra Corsa, Corsica, France
    Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Although it is closer to Italy, it has been under French rule since 1769. The Terra Corsa vineyards are located on the East coast of Corsica, between the Thyrrenian sea and the mountains and have a long tradition of excellence. This island of contrasts and passions, was very early revealed as a priviledged wine growing area. In the second century BC., the Phoceans, sailing from Greece settled in Alalia (today Aléria) on the Eastern coast, and introduced the culture of the vine. The birth date of a beautiful and long history from antiquity to our days, history that will generate a great tradition of excellence in wine making.

    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.

    Rosé Wine

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

    Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
