Oriu Rose

ORIU 2007


80% Sciaccarellu, 20% Niellucciu. Grape varietals harvested from the oldest plots which were planted with vine stocks fetched from Corsican mountain villages. At that time, these grape varietals were all but forgotten.


Sciaccarellu and Niellucciu are free-run, not pressed, and matured on their lees which are stirred up through “bâtonnage”, in order to extract maximal body and bouquet from the oh-so-aromatic Sciaccarellu.

Tasting notes

Aromatic wine displaying a wide combination of scents from strawberry, lime, pear, and pineapple to violet and fresh Virginia tobacco.
Taste is fleshy yet clean and firm, with notes of citrus, cherry and prune.
