JONATHAN RAY goes on a visit to Corsica, having been promised a wonderful wine experiece by Jason Yapp of Yapp Brothers. One of the wineries on the itinery is Domaine Saparale, and Ray is 'pleasantly surprised'. The next visit offers up a 2005 Domaine Torraccia Rouge, which is reportedly reminiscent of a 'fox's arse' when young, but luckily becomes 'marvellously juicy and jammy' with a bit of age. Ultimately, says Ray, 'it's Corsica's ross that hit the spot'. Other recommendations of the week include 2004 Da Luca Grillo-Chardonnay, Sicily (5.99; Somerfield).
