Coteaux du Cap Corse: Domaine Pieretti Rosé 2018
Up on the stunningly beautiful northern peninsula of the Cap Corse, Lina Pieretti, one of Corsica's few female winemakers, makes a dry, zesty, onion-skin hued rosé that partners seafood perfectly.
A coral pink, dry and aromatic Coteaux du Cap Corse rosé wine with appealing raspberry and rosehip aromas, blended from roughly equal parts of Nielluccio, Grenache and Alicante grown on a tiny plot in the North of the island. The vineyard enjoys an excellent elevation, amazing light levels and stunning sea views.

Lina Pieretti-Venturi is one of only four winemakers on the Cap Corse (the northernmost peninsula) and one of only two female vignerons on the whole Island of Corsica. Lina farms 11 hectares of vine holdings just outside Santa Severa, near Luri from which she produces tiny volumes of dry rosé and sweet Muscat.View more wines from this producer...
