Domaine Vetriccie

Rosé, 2017

Corsica has a wine tradition extending back millennia—but only found its groove in the last half-century, as farmers began trading chestnut trees for grapevines. Among those leading the transition was the Barcelo family, who in 1966 bought a perfect lakeside property. They’re now a third-generation winemaking family, crafting bright, zesty wines in Corsica’s ideal climate. It took thousands of years for Corsica to make wines like this, but it was worth the wait.

Profile

Domaine Vetriccie Rosé is an island wine in every sense, born of bright sun and seaside breezes. It’s brighter, racier and more complex than typical Provence rosés, which are fuller, leaning more toward berry flavors.

Pairing

Light pink in color and redolent of red-berry, citrus and stony notes, rosés in the southern French style are sunshine in a glass. Crisp rosé complements any dish the French would enjoy seaside on summer vacation—seafood, salads, anything served with aioli.

TASTING TIP

Note the wine’s minerally, saline character. This is due to the salty ocean winds that blow toward the vineyards day and night.

Rosé with Mexican, always. The wine's brightness will cut the richness and make the fresh flavors pop.

A bright, fresh summer taco is always delicious with a bright, fresh rosé. Stick with what works!

With a fresh, summery dish like this, there's no better option than a bright, fresh rosé. Be sure to dine outside on the deck.

Bright, fresh rosé and spicy Buffalo chicken—always a classic pairing. Settle in for a night of happiness.

Rosé is always the right call with a Mexican-style dish. The wine cuts the cheesy richness and livens up the veggies.

A crisp, vibrant rosé is always the right call with a bright summery dish. The wine will balance the dish's richness, too.

More About The Wine

Corsica, a French island in the Mediterranean, got its first grapevines 2,500 years ago, thanks to the ancient Greeks. Its imposing peaks host ski resorts, within sight of sunny beaches. In between are the vineyards, which are protected from inclement weather by the mountains. Corsica’s winemaking leans heavily toward rosé; it comprises 70 percent of wine production.

DID YOU KNOW?

Corsica’s leading grape variety, Nielluccio, is genetically identical to Tuscany’s Sangiovese grape. Sciacarello, a grape native to Corsica, is similar to Pinot Noir.
