The Wines

  Clos Alivu Niellucio   Niellucio, genetically linked to Sangiovese, thrives in this ideally situated inlet at the north end of Corsica. With limited yields, the wine has more freshness and more finesse than its Tuscan cousin. Matured in vats for one year and then lightly filtered, Clos Alivu produces just 2,200 cases annually.

  Picco del Sole Cannonau   Primary fermentation of the must occurs naturally and often takes about two weeks, after which the free run wine is pumped off into tank and the skins are pressed to extract the remaining juice. After secondary fermentation, the wine is transferred into stainless steel to rest for 6-8 months before filtration and bottling.

  Liotro Inzolia   Light green in color, this wine has a typical fruity bouquet with delicate floral and tropical fruit notes. Maturation occurs in stainless steel at low temperatures for a few months and is then bottled and released. Perfect for those hot late summer days.
