Blend of Niellucciu, Sciaccarellu, Syrah.
The wine is bright purple with a violet core, clear and shiny in the glass. The nose sets cherry as the cornerstone aroma of the wine. Rather spicy, this is accompanied by a pleasant freshness. Earthy and vegetal notes of autumn give depth and already draw silhouettes of the structure to be guessed. The Clos Venturi 1796 Rouge exudes lightness while wearing a precise corset of tannins that give it impeccable body and steely structure. All the variables seem coherent and finely balanced.
The vines of Clos Venturi are rooted in Sandstone, basalt, granite and blue slate. Together with the continental climate of the Central Corsica and the influence of the Mediterranean, the soils bring freshness, minerality and maturity to the wines in equal measure. The stony environment, however, contributes above all purity and barrenness in the wines.
The founder Jean Vico has cultivated the vineyards on the French Mediterranean island only with autochthonous grape varieties. Vermentinu, Sciaccarellu, Niellucciu, Carcaghjolu Neru, Aleatico and Minustellu bring even experienced wine connoisseurs to the limits of their knowledge. As a tribute to Jean Vico, wines are still named after him today.
