Cintu Ile de Beaute Rouge 2019

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop near the south coast [www.henningswine.co.uk] for £11.50.It is from the general Corsican IGP and consists of 70% niellucciu,a Corsican version of the Italian grape sangiovese, and 30% syrah.I started the bottle this evening with my supper of chicken breasts and I did enjoy it. This wine is certainly full-bodied and full of dark fruits [blackcurrant and blackberry] although the tannins are soft making it easy drinking. There is also a suggestion of pepper or spice particularly on the finish.In short,this is a first class wine that would match many foods
