2013 Patrimonio Rouge “Carco”

Antoine Arena

2013 Patrimonio <i>Rouge</i> “Carco” Antoine Arena - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $45.00

Antoine couldn’t bear to relinquish the storied Carco parcel, so he will continue to release the wine under his own label for the time being. This 100% Niellucciu is exactly what we love about the Arena reds: dense, chewy, driven, a bit rustic, and brimming with a wild energy that brings to mind the arid, craggy landscape of the Île de Beauté. From the hands of a Corsican legend, this beauty can be enjoyed young from an ice bucket alongside grilled fish just as it can be cellared for many years, patiently waiting to unleash its full spectrum of island flavors. –Anthony Lynch
