About this product

30% Niellucciu, 30% Grenache, 15% Sciacarellu, 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Carignan - Great wine is said to be a translation of the place in which it is made, and few wines demonstrate this statement as well as Corsica’s unique island creations. Domaine Maestracci, a family-run estate inland of the port town of Calvi, sits between mountains and sea on a plateau known as Reginu, constantly ventilated by Mediterranean breezes saturated with whiffs of the local shrubbery, the maquis. This red—a blend of Niellucciu, Grenache, Sciaccarellu, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Carignan—perfectly captures the area’s magnificent, totally untamed landscape. In the glass you’ll find explosive aromas of wild red fruits, smoke, and the pervasive herbs of the maquis, along with a chewiness that recalls the rocky, rugged terrain. While Clos Reginu represents Maestracci’s entry-level bottling, this red deserves to be treated with respect"allowing the wine to open up with air reveals much more than one would expect, given the value pricing. -Anthony Lynch
