Domaine de Vaccelli - Unu Rouge 2018
The modernised Corsican viticulture at the Domaine de Vaccelli and its typical Corsican grape varieties are the pillars of the Ajaccio appellation and terroir. They are determined to maintain their principles set in 2008 with a focus on manually harvesting and organic farming. The vineyard became certified organic in 2019. The vineyard now consists of 25 hectares of vines planted in hillsides on granite arenas in AOC Ajaccio and has become one of the best Corsican Domaines.
Generous, quite bloody, Unu Rouge combines an energetic structure and a fleshy scale. Quite heady in its aromas of cinnamon and dried flowers. The nose has notes of black cherry, rose, sweet spices, and a hint of garrigue. The palate is in perfect balance, between fruit, power and lusciousness, with beautiful length. Worth decanting, or cellar 7 years. 92% Sciaccarellu, 4% Carcaghjolu Neru, 4% Minustellu.
