Yves Leccia Domaine de Marquiliani Île De Beauté Rouge 2016

$ 23.75

40% Sciaccarellu, 40% Syrah, and 20% Grenache

And as of 2015, Anne also crafts a bit of rouge from her vineyards of Sciaccarellu, Syrah, and Grenache. In contrast with the chewy, resinous, almost wild reds from the aforementioned appellations, hers mirrors the character of the domaine’s rosés: delicate, perfumed, uncomplicated, and dangerously swallowable. A perfect summer red loaded with freshness, bright fruit, and smooth tannins, it demands to be chilled and gulped with or without food—no need to think about it too hard. Anne’s rouge is a different face of Corsican wine; and with this red, Marquiliani continues to embody the most elemental form of island pleasure.
