Somewhat rustic, as fits a country wine, with a background of meaty savoriness, earth with maquis spices and brambly tannins, it sports smooth, easy-drinking dark cherry and berry fruit. Lifted by raspberry acidity and rounded out with cedar, it is fresh, fruity, earthy, and firm all in perfect proportion.

Corsicans are no strangers to rugged landscapes and isolated areas, yet there is only one spot on the island that has earned the name of “Desert” among Corsicans. The Agriates Desert is a large, rugged, empty and arid swath of land between the Cap Corse and Calvi on the northern end of the island. There are no cities nor towns, only one small paved road, and only one hamlet, with a dozen or so inhabitants. It’s swept year round with the Libecciu, a hot and dry wind that rolls down off the Italian coast, and it’s been an empty area for nearly a century. The wind combined with the clay-granite soils makes growing anything here extremely laborious, with the vines requiring constant plowing to allow the roots to forage deep for water and nutrients.
