2020 Clos Fornelli Corse
Item No. 2j551
About This WineWe tasted the 2020 La Robe d'Ange a few weeks ago with fifteen other wines all costing considerably more. It was the standout of the tasting. The wine delivers joyfulness, good complexity, and a freshness that makes you want to return for another sip. It's rare that we taste wine this satisfying at this price point.
Clos Fornelli farms organically on Corsica's eastern coast. This part of Corsica is cooler than much of the island. It shows in the invigorating current of acidity in the La Robe d'Ange. La Robe d'Ange Rouge is based on Sciaccarello, a native grape of Corsica. The 2020 is dark fruited with notes of sun-baked herbs and a dark minerality. There's an appealing juiciness to the wine that's backed by good brightness and complexity.
