Clos Fornelli Corse Niellucciu Rouge 2022


We have run out of stock for this item.

From meticulously farmed vineyards in a unique micro-climate that combines Mediterranean sun with cool air from the sea and nearby mountains, comes this round, spicy, medium-bodied red made from Niellucciu and a smidge of the ancient and rare Corsican variety of Minustellu. Extremely versatile, this wine can be served with pasta or risotto, red meat and game birds, and aged cheeses.

  • Organically-farmed property on the eastern edge of Corsica overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. Nights in the east are typically cooler thanks to the Castagniccia mountains rising from the sea, shortening sun exposure and thus preserving freshness and aromatics in the wines.
  • Classic Corsican varieties like Vermentinu, Sciaccarellu, and Niellucciu, along with the lesser known white grapes of Biancu Gentile and Genovese, and red grape Minustellu are planted in clay and alluvial soils from Bravone River deposits and gradual erosion of the slate mountains. 
  • Madame Vanucci and her husband Fabrice Couloumère are committed to producing low-intervention, high-pleasure wines that reveal the characteristics of grape and place.
