This recipe calls for a nice ice-chilled rose wine. I chose Alivetto Rosé. This wine is a fresh dry rose wine made with unique blends of Nielluciu, Sciaccarellu, and Syrah. The first two are indigenous grape varieties of Corsica. Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the 18 regions of France. This is a very balanced wine with a round finish that pairs well with seafood, especially shrimps.
Detailed information from the official website:
Nielluciu - 40%
Sciaccarellu - 40%
Syrah - 20%
The Alivetto estate is affiliated with the Aghione Cooperative Cellar, located in the south of Corsica. Vines prosper a clay-limestone soils, shaded by clay-silty soils, red sands and rolled pebbles. The vineyard enjoys ideal sunshine and a temperate climate due to the proximity of the sea and its proximity to nearby mountains. The varietals are vinified separately. Cold liquid stabilization precedes fermentation at controlled temperature. Breeding is done on fine lees with baton. Alivetto rosé wine has the color of very pale rose petals. Its aroma exudes floral scents typical of the surrounding scrub vegetation. On the palate, its body is delicate and well balanced.
