Clos Marfisi Patrimonio Rouge "Gritole" '16


Clos Marfisi Patrimonio Rouge "Gritole" '16

The wines of Corsica are certainly not new arrivals to us here in the United States. Famed importer Kermit Lynch has been importing wine from Corsica for many years. During that time, those producers were essentially the only game in town. 

So it is exciting to note that a handful of new producers are now being brought in by the all-around-good-guys at Selection Massale. 

Of the new arrivals, we were particularly excited about this wine from Mathieu and Julie Touissant of Clos Marfisi. This is a tiny domaine, 15 hectares in total, located in the famed AOC of Patrimonio. 

"Gritole" comes from Nielluciu vines planted on a Western facing parcel in 1990. The vineyard is chock full of limestone, and is close to the coastline. The vineyards are farmed organically, and have always been. 

The wine is fermented in stainless steel with natural yeasts, and aged entirely in cement for 18 months. 

Sometimes the wines from Corsica we have tasted in the past have been marred by oak or have been bacterial, this wine is the opposite, it is all about the fruit, earth tones and beautiful terroir. A super, juicy delicious red to pair with grilled lamb chops. We should also note, this is a incredible value.
