Hare Fur and Liquorice Nose of Nielluccio, Crisp Sciaccarello, Wines of Corsica, My Next Tasting

Crisp Sciaccarello, hare fur and liquorice nose of Nielluccio, these grapes power some of the best red wines from Corsica.

Aleatico, Barbarossa, Codivarta, Biancu Gentile, Genovese, Riminese, Vermentino...

These are other grape varietals that are the backbone of Wines of Corsica.

I will have a chance to discover new favorites at Wines of Corsica (Vins de Corse) tasting 2 days from now (April 30, 2014).


With warm days almost upon us, some Rosés will surely be offered.
