AOC Patrimonio: Domaine Paradella Rouge 2017
Intensely coloured and deep-flavoured Corsican red wine made from 100% Nielluccio (Sangiovese). Red fruit and exotic spice combine with fine tannins and structure to make an approachable wine that will age.
Lionel Wojcik's exciting new venture in Corsica follows his boutique St Emilion Grand Cru Chateau Alverne. Using the same Radoux oak barrels as his friend and wine adviser Louis Mitjavile (Chateau Le Tertre Roteboeuf, Roc de Cambes, Domaine de l'Aurage).
In order to re-create the humid, damp cellar conditions of his home estate in St Emilion in the dry climate of Corsica, an ingenious system of spraying a fine mist over the barrels every half an hour was created in the Paradella chai.
