Sébastien Poly-Casablanca, winemaker at the helm of U Stiliccionu, is unquestionably one of the natural wine world’s fastest rising stars. While it’s certainly true that the very best expressions of Corsican wines are not inexpensive bottles, we challenge you to find a superior value at this price point from any other region in France.
The interplay of wild Corsican herbs and lush, minerally fruit found in this bottle, with impeccable balance between acidity and tannin, freshness and concentration, makes this wine a joy to drink. Bursting with notes of brambly red and blackberries, with an undercurrent of minerality, and a finish of robust tannins, this wine will blossom in your cellar for the next decade. Still, this wine is a stunner to drink today with a decant, and it will show beautifully alongside boldly flavored red meats–leg of lamb, sausages, or ribeye. Take your pick.
