Clos Alivu 'Patrimonio' Rouge 2016, Corsica, France

REGION 
Patrimonio, Corsica, France

VARIETAL 
Nielluccio

TASTING NOTES
Protected by the maritime influences of the Golfe de Saint-Florent, vines cultivated on the limestone soils of Patrimonio’s hillsides rarely require treatments of any kind, so Eric Poli's practices are essentially organic (though without certification). Niellucio, genetically linked to Sangiovese, thrives in this ideally situated inlet at the north end of the island, and when yields are limited, results in wines with more freshness and finesse than those made from its Tuscan cousin. This Corsican red has perfumed plum, black fruit and dried roses on the nose followed by cherries, herbs, and a touch of liquorice wrapped in ripe tannins on the palate.
