91pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous

From wild and beautiful Corsica, we have the Clos Fornelli Rose. It's a bargain any day of the week, and equally delicious to boot! We drink Rose year round, and it's because of wines like this one. Gorgeous minerality trips across the palate, along with stunning fruit. Add to that a hint of floral notes and we're dreaming of chicken, fish, hearty fall salads and more. What are you dreaming of, winelovers?

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "Pale brilliant orange. Mineral-accented red berry, pit fruit and citrus fruit aromas, along with subtle floral and herb flourishes. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering sharply delineated blood orange and raspberry flavors that deepen on the back half. The mineral quality comes back on the finish, adding nervy cut to lingering red fruit and fennel notes. Drink 2019-2022." Aug 2019

Trade Notes:  "From vines near the eastern coast of Corsica, below the massif of Castagniccia. The proximity of the sea protects the vineyard from excessive drought, while the neighboring mountains (which reach a height of more than 2500 metres) generate cool air at night that refreshes the grapes and allows them to recover from the stress of the day time heat.

Their winemaking philosophy is straightforward and lends itself to a style that speaks of the place with a clear voice of each grape’s primary characteristics, with little intervention. The fermentations are all natural and the wines are bottled after a short time in vat with sulfites kept to a minimum; it’s easy to feel this deft touch through these wines bursting with pleasure; even her Sciacarello, a thin framed, fresh and aromatic red (often over-sculpted in other cellars) is a darling here with no uncertainty in its naturally sensual aromas.
