Domaine Poli 2021 Ile De Beaute Niellucciu Rose, Corsica
Once again the Poli family are giving us a classic Corsican Rose at about half the price as so many on the market these days. Made from 100% Niellucciu, (Sangiovese) this was another wine that was tasting really great, even way back in January when I was going through tank samples. Red fruited on the nose with a flirty lemongrass aroma that shines through. On the palate there is more red fruit but here you get a chalky note that also has an oceanic flourish on the dry finish. Makes me crave sea creatures or snappy cheeses made from goat or sheep milk.
