Corsica on Snooth

  • Alain Corrèges Domaine de Vaccelli Granit Rouge 2014

    Snoothrank:

There's a touch of wet wool on the nose followed by strawberry Jolly Rancher and watermelon sorbet on the palate.

Hints of lemon and chamomile, mixed with p... Read More

  • Locations Corse Vermentino NV

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting Corsican vermentino. Starts out just a tad sweet but after a few sips this turns more floral, kind of like a decent reisling with a hit of almond. Decent acidity and a medium finish. Very nice change of pace. Read More
