Casa Rossa Ile du Beauté Rouge 2022
A light, chillable red made from Nielluccio, a relative of Sangiovese that’s widely grown in the north of Corsica, with Merlot. Uncomplicated, fragrant and dry, Nielluccio brings the aromatics and character, Merlot brings it’s supple, round profile.
From the southern part of the island of Corsica, Casa Rossa produce wines from both local and international varieties. The vineyards are situated on clay-limestone soils. While Corsica is a French territorial collectivity, it certainly has a strong identity of its own. And a unique wine industry of its own too. Sitting in the Mediterranean, its warm, sunny situation is moderated by the sea and by its often mountainous terrain.
