bashful + blushing / silky spice / gluggable + guzzleable
What is sciacarello you say? I'm surprised you don't know this piece of very common knowledge! It's a grape variety that usually grows on the island of Corsica. It is also synonymous with the mammolo grape in Tuscany. Typically it is soft, spicy and very drinkable. The Koerner Brothers are interested in making lower alcohol wines (relative to Australia) that are delicate and inspired by Loire Valley stylistically. Unlike some other sciacarellos out there this isn't as big and ripe but more light and lifted. Look up mammolo and you will find images of Bashful, the blushing Disney character. Is this wine named for how it blushes, or how it will make you blush? You tell us!
