(2018) Part of Lidl's French wine tour of special parcel wines in autumn 2018, 'Joseph Scalzi' is presumably a fantasy label as I can find no record of a Corsican producer of that name. The blend is 45% Nielluccio, 35% Sciaccarello and 20% Grenache, and pours a medium ruby colour with aromas of pulpy, soft red fruits and a little herbal, herbaceous twang. In the mouth there is good fruit, a little plummy fleshiness, then pert, nimble cherry acidity and some grainy tannins to add a little grip and savouriness, the finish just hints at a not unpleasant sourness.
