Wine tasting: Domaine Comte Peraldi. Ajaccio, Corsica 2013

Extremely complex, light to medium bodied red from the French island of Corsica. Made from the indigenous grapes Sciaccarello and Nielluccio; blended with Cinsault and Carignan. Smooth and persistant, this wine is characterized by aromas of almonds, berries and spices like black pepper. Made in a terroir composed mainly of granite soil, it pairs well with goat cheese, charcuterie and red meats. Keeps well in cellar for up to 12 years!

Location: Londra, Regno Unito
