Wine of the Week – Clos Venturi 2011 Red Wine

Wine of the Week – Clos Venturi 2011 Red, Domaine
Vico
Wines from Corsica are a rarity, for this wine drinker at least, so discovering the wines of Clos Venturi was an unexpected pleasure. Well known in Europe, they are still a rarity here.
This one has been characterized a “rough” and “fun” and both terms apply well. From one of Corsica’s oldest wineries, it’s a casual and charming sipper with its own earthy beauty – perfect with pastas or pizzas or by the glass, a blend of Niellucio/Sangiovese, nicely balanced with fruit flavors and spiciness.
None other than the esteemed Kermit Lynch calls Corsica “the most exciting wine region in France.” This wine tells the story of Ponte-Vecchia where it comes from well.
