2014 Muscat du Cap Corse “Grotte di Sole”

Jean-Baptiste Arena

2014 Muscat du Cap Corse “Grotte di Sole” Jean-Baptiste Arena - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $48.00

The Arena sons are as eager to think outside the box and execute novel ideas (see opposite) as they are to honor the local winemaking traditions that have come to define Corsica. One such tradition, Cap Corse’s celebrated dessert wine, represents one of the most fascinating and intriguing expressions of Muscat in the world. Talk about a sense of place: Muscat grown here seems to soak up the smells of its surroundings to give a uniquely Corsican perfume. It radiates Mediterranean sunshine, suggesting maquis wildflowers along with hints of wild mint and other herbs. Try splashing a dollop of the nectar over a seasonal fruit salad, then pour each of your guests a glass to accompany it—they are sure to be wowed. –Anthony Lynch
