The power, structure and acidity come from the Nielluccio grape and the finesse and complexity from the Sciaccarelo grape which is known as the "Corsican Pinot Noir". The blend of these two red grapes makes a very savory, fresh wine with medium body and distinct herbal aromas reminiscent of the "maquis" scrub on the island. The floral aroma has undertones of black licorice, tobacco, thyme and tarragon which carries through to the palate, combining with ripe black fruit flavors, pepper, spice and balanced acidity. Enjoy this red wine with all kinds of cheeses, cold cuts, full-flavored fish (salmon, swordfish, bluefish), chicken and duck. It is a great pairing with a spiced Pork Loin Dish.
