2017 Casa Luna Niellucciu-Syrah Rosé Corsica

2017 Casa Luna Niellucciu-Syrah Rosé Corsica

Fresh Corsican Rosé from Ile de Beauté


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 Rosé is a wonderful example of the island’s classic European wines. Made from 50% Nielluccio (essentially Corsican Sangiovese) and 50% Syrah, this raspberry pink Rosé explodes with red berries and tangy citrus on the nose. The palate is fresh with ripe strawberries and raspberries, and hints of grapefruit and candied citrus on the long finish. Pair it with Mediterranean cuisine, seafood, and fresh cheeses.
