Perhaps you are familiar with Domaine de Marquiliani’s rosé, an ethereal cloud of perfume produced by Anne Amalric at her tiny estate. The domaine, located on Corsica’s flatter, more arable east coast, was originally an olive oil mill until Anne’s father planted the first vineyards in the 1950s. Since taking over, Anne has focused on oil and rosé until 2015, the inaugural vintage of Marquiliani rouge. This blend of Sciaccarellu, Syrah, and Grenache is vinified and bottled at a nearby custom crush facility in the city of Bastia, as the domaine itself is not equipped to carry out this process. Anne manages the winemaking nonetheless, choosing to age this red in stainless steel and bottle it unfiltered. Medium-bodied and loaded with dark fruit and hints of   herbs, this Corsican quaffer is made for simple Mediterranean cuisine—ideally, topped with a drizzle of fragrant, herbaceous Marquiliani olive oil.–Anthony Lynch
