TASTING NOTE:
Meaty palate and peppery taste, a wide spectrum of aromas (almonds, red fruits, leather, and the scent of the Corsican scrubland maquis that covers much of the island), as well as powdery tannins through to the finish.

APPELLATION
Corsica

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Sciaccarellu

ABOUT THE GRAPE:
Native to Corsica, Sciaccarellu does exceptionally well in the sandstone soil found in Clos Venturi Estate. The name is from a Corsican adjective meaning, literally, ’crispy-crunchy between the teeth’ and, indeed, this grape does have a tough skin. Sciaccarellu wines are close in appearance and aroma to Pinot Noir (it’s considered to be a sommelier’s trap). The colour tends to be pale and unstable, and it’s difficult to find a 100% Sciaccarellu wine.

AREA UNDER VINES
8 hectares

TERROIR
Sandstone with south-south east exposure
