An outstanding and rare sweet wine from Corsica.
Inland from the small coastal resort of Propriano Domaine Fiumicicoli’s vineyards nestle between the sea and the mountains, resulting in even temperatures, low rainfall and a high level of sunshine hours per day. On a granite slope, with poor, acidic soils Simon Andreani grows Muscateddu (an old Corsican variety, related to Sciacarello which has all but disappeared today). Grapes are harvested when over ripe and macerated for eight to ten days under controlled temperatures. Fermentation is blocked by reducing the temperature down to (10 ° C) so that a sugar content of approx. 60g/litre is maintained.
An exciting sweet red wine from the fragrant Muscateddu grape (related to the red Sciacarello of Corsica), this ruby-coloured, unoaked and unfortified wine brims with aromas of strawberry jam and allspice. The palate is fresh and equally aromatic; resinous, woody flavours mix with cherries and bittersweet orange peel.
A great match to game paté or smoked mackerel as well as not-so-sweet dark chocolate desserts.
