Fly into Calvi and you’ll immediately get a sense of the landscape in this part of Corsica. The gorgeous blue Mediterranean gives way to a mountainous landmass, so imposing that your airplane has little room for error between the sea and the colossal wall of granite emerging from its depths. You’ll notice some vineyards near the coastline, but one must travel inland, away from Calvi’s ancient citadel, to find the plateau of Reginu, where Camille-Anaïs Raoust crafts the wines of Domaine Maestracci. This landlocked agricultural haven, encircled by rugged granite peaks, enjoys a particularly hot and dry microclimate, ideal for producing concentrated wines redolent of the wild maquis that seems to grow straight out of the rock. This chewy red consists of Niellucciu, Grenache, Sciaccarellu, and Syrah, fermented with native yeasts and aged in foudre. Deep, intense, wild, and loaded with smoky, herbaceous Mediterranean flavors, it genuinely translates the savage beauty of the Reginu plateau.  –Anthony Lynch
