"Also a mix of Niellucciu and Syrah, the 2016 Corse Domaine Petroni came from granite soils along the Mediterranean and was raised all in demi-muids. This medium to full-bodied beauty certainly makes an impression. It has sensational minerality as well as notes of black cherries, blackberries, spice, and flowers. Deep, layered, incredibly elegant, and seamless, with the tension and vibrancy common from granite soils, it should evolve for well over a decade."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Grape varieties: 50% Niellucciu, 35% Syrah, 15% Grenache. Terroir: The soil is characterized by its sand and clay sediments left over by the evaporation of the Miocene sea (5 Ma). Winemaking: Traditional, long fermentation (20 days) in concrete vats. 12 months maturation in stainless steel tanks. Tasting notes: This red wine has a ruby hue with violet hints. On the nose, the wine offers aromas of red fruit (strawberries, blackcurrant and raspberries) as well as delicate spice and a light minerality. It is supple on entry to the palate with red fruit flavours and subtle roasted notes. The finish is ample with silky tannins and good length.
