Grape Variety

Nielluccio

Producer

Tanguy Chevalier

The Nielluccio grape may be the same variety as Sangiovese but has evolved over time, adapting to the Corsican climate. It is often dark in colour, riper and fresher. This 2022 vintage cuvée has lively citrussy, minty notes complementing its dark plum flavours. It is quite firm and weighty on the palate, balanced by brisk acidity, chalky tannins and a dry finish. Best with food. 2024-2029–JB
