Domaine Vico Le Bois du Cerf Rouge


This Corsican wine, a blend of indigenous grapes Niellucciu (70%) and Sciaccarellu (20%) along with 10% Syrah, is vinified in cement-lined tanks and undergoes a 30 days maceration. It is aged on its lees for 12-18 months in cement vats and bottled after a light filtration. The wine has deep red fruit aromas and flavors that are nicely balanced by its mineral and earthy tones—the so-called Corsican maquie or garrigue that combines rosemary, mint, thyme, basil and oregano. Because of this profile it is perfectly matched with grilled lamb.
