As the name implies, this wine is “always happy”, probably because the grapes are raised on the beautiful French island of Corsica, in an arid vineyard by the sea. Christian Giacometti makes the native Corsican grape in a fresh, crunchy style full of tangy strawberry, brambly raspberry and juicy plum fruits mixed with zesty blood orange, flinty mineral and minty notes. It’s medium bodied-brightness belies the alcohol content, which is a surprising 14%, but it wears it well – this pretty wine goes down easily, especially with a light chill that brings out its uncontainable zest.
