PUMONTE ROUGE, DOMAINE 'ALZIPRATU, FRANCE, 2018

Regular price $72.95

Big & Bold

Domaine Alzipratu’s vineyards are located on the island of Corsica. Located 90 km west of Italy, 170 km southeast of France and 11 km north of the island of Sardinia, the island is a territory of France, but many of the region's winemaking traditions and grape varieties are Italian in origin. It is here that Pierre Acquaviva cultivates, amid olive and almonds groves, the islands local varieties of Sciaccarellu, Niellucciu and Vermentino.

Pumonte is a slope at the foot of the Cirque de Bonifatu, a breath-taking natural park where creeks and streams hide among high peaks. The proximity of the mountains cools the usually hot temperatures of Corisca during the summer, perserving the freshness and the aromas in the grapes. This red made from old vines of Sciaccarellu, Niellucciu, Aleaticcu and Minustellu is rich, earthy, smooth and velvety. On the nose it has nice bouquet of red fruits and garrigue. On the palate, the wine is big and bold, with silky tannins. 

To be enjoyed with spicy meats and stews.
