 Where to Buy

2016 Patrimonio (Best Buy) Eric Poli, who runs Corsica's Domaine de Piana, bought 7.4 acres of 50-year-old vines in the stony white soils of Patrimonio in 2005. They've produced a big, beautiful rosé of niellucio in 2016. A diaphanous pink, the wine opens with scents of violets and wild herbs, then expands into wild strawberry and black pepper flavors. Bold and dynamic, the wine has a seaside earthiness and richness that recalls a lobster bisque, which would make a fabulous pairing. —Tara Q. Thomas
