Taste: On the nose, it offers an enchanting bouquet of peach, fresh citrus, and sarsaparilla, with underlying hints of dried herbs and a touch of saline minerality. The palate is sleek and vibrant, presenting a well-structured acidity that provides a sense of sharpness on the attack. This is followed by a fuller, rounder mid-palate that showcases the wine's complexity with layered notes of lemon pulp, ginger, star fruit, and a subtle hint of almond. The finish is crisp, tight, and persistent, leaving a refreshing impression that invites you to take another sip.
Pairing: The 2021 Clos Fornelli Blanc is a versatile wine that pairs beautifully with a wide range of dishes, enhancing both simple and complex flavors. This Vermentino shines when paired with seafood, such as grilled fish, shrimp, or oysters. Its bright acidity and mineral notes also complement salads, light pasta dishes, and creamy sauces.

About. For a Corsican touch, pair this wine with local dishes like "aziminu," a fish stew featuring a variety of fresh fish and shellfish, or "sturzapreti," a Corsican gnocchi made with brocciu cheese and fresh herbs. Another option is to serve it alongside a charcuterie platter with regional cured meats and artisanal cheeses.
The 2021 Clos Fornelli Blanc pairs harmoniously with vegetable-based dishes. Enjoy it with a Mediterranean salad featuring grilled vegetables, olives, and feta cheese. The wine's acidity and crispness also work well with a risotto primavera, a dish highlighting fresh, seasonal vegetables. For a lighter option, pair it with a simple bruschetta topped with ripe tomatoes, basil, and a drizzle of olive oil.
