Sciaccarellu (pronounced somewhere between ‘shack-a-rell’ and ‘jack-a-rell’) is a red grape from Corsica (known as Mammolo in Tuscany) that makes a light-coloured and floral red with some grip. The palate simply explodes with amarena cherry and citrus and red fruits, some licorice, alongside thyme, minerality and a bit of smokiness. Vinified in concrete vats to keep things fewest and lively, this has big acid but with a smooth - balanced core.

From vines near the eastern coast of Corsica, below the 2,500m mountains Clos Fornelli farm and vinify with little intervention. The fermentations are all natural and the wines are bottled after a short time in vat with sulfites kept to a minimum.
