Domaine Poli Nieillucciu Rose 2016
Niellucio, believed to be related to Sangiovese, thrives in this ideally situated inlet at the north end of the island of Corsica, and when yields are limited, results in wines with more freshness and finesse than those made from its Tuscan cousin. This freshness is readily apparent in the Domaine Poli Rosé, one of the finest Corsica has to offer. Winemaker Eric Poli farms organically (though he is not certified) and is someone to watch in this area.
This rose is clean and fresh with slightly herbed strawberry aromas, laced with a pleasantly salty finish.
