2016 Casa Luna Niellucciu-Merlot Corsica

Classic European red blend from Corsica


Ile de Beauté wines hail from the island of Corsica, which is located in the Mediterranean Sea between Provençe and Tuscany. Corsica is under French control, but closer to Italy, and 2017 Casa Luna Rouge is a wonderful example of the island’s classic European wines. Made from 50% Nielluccio (essentially Corsican Sangiovese) and 50% Merlot, this red blend is a bright crimson red in the glass with ripe notes of fruit and chocolate and hints of spice and toast on the nose. The palate is deliciously smooth, silky, and easy-to-drink with a surprising complexity. Pair it with grilled meat, red meat, pizza, and cheese and charcuterie platters.
