2013 Corse Calvi <em>Rouge</em> “E Prove” Domaine Maestracci - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $22.00

ADD

Just inland from the lovely port town of Calvi, the alleged birthplace of Christopher Columbus, vines cover vast granite expanses in the shadow of the towering Monte Grosso. This interplay of maritime and mountain influences provides cool nights to contrast with the hot days in Corsica’s dry and windy hills—perfect conditions for growing concentrated grapes saturated with flavor. On the E Prove plateau, Camille-Anaïs Raoust of Domaine Maestracci farms Niellucciu, Grenache, Sciaccarellu, and Syrah for this robust red that seems infused with the local aromas of maquis herbs and wild fruit. Aged for two years—including one in barrels—before release, this red has a smoky, spicy element that makes it an ideal match for richly flavored Mediterranean cuisine. Grilled lamb chops, ratatouille, or a vegetable tagine would certainly do the trick.  –Anthony Lynch
