2017 Domaine Paradella, Patrimonio, Corsica

It's hard to believe this is only the second vintage of Paradella. The confidence and skill of the winemaking here speaks of superb experience, which can be attributed to Lionel Wojcik’s training at Château Tertre Roteboeuf. Made from Nielluccio (the local name for Sangiovese) and grown in the Corsican commune of Patrimonio - the finest on the island - it has such intense, decadent red berries beneath its rich, toasty oak. It will meld beautifully together with a few years in bottle.

2017 Domaine Paradella, Patrimonio, Corsica
Domaine Paradella

This young domaine, established in 2016, produces wines with levels of elegance, decadence, and sophistication that fly in the face of any notions of rusticity in Corsican wines. Lionel Wojcik is a good friend of François Mitjavile’s son, and trained at Tertre Roteboeuf itself. The influence is clear in his Nielluccio (the local name for Sangiovese). It treads that same line as Mitjavile’s wines: somehow being both an evocative expression of place and terroir, whilst also echoing the velvety tones of an exquisite Burgundy. These are captivating wines, from a huge new young talent.
