2016 Domaine Pieretti Rouge, Coteaux du Cap Corse, Corsica, France 750ml

We thought our favorite Corsian producer, Yves Leccia, cornered the market on Nielluccio based red blends, until we tried this gem from Domaine Pieretti. With notes of red plum, and a little white pepper, this baby finishes with snappy acidity that makes one think of a Loire Valley Cabernet Franc. Though, this blend of 70% Nielluccio and 30% Grenache is more fleshy and ever so slightly rounded on the medium-bodied palate. It proves to be a well structured wine with somewhat chalky tannins which are at the same time well integrated. This is a very nice wine from an up and coming producer who just happens to be a very talented woman. Lina Venturri Pieretti took over the estate from her grandfather and looks after 14 hectares of sustainably farmed vines located a stone's throw from the Mediterranean Sea on the eastern side of Cap Corse.
