Corsica - a sun-kissed holiday isle or the
home to some of the Med's most adventurous wines?
There is more than meets the eye with Corsica. This island has a
great spine that rises high into the azure Mediterranean sky, with
mountain tops sprinkled with snow, creating a fascinating and
diverse climate for such a small island. Clos Venturi sits at the
very edge of the winemaking zone, up in the foothills where the the
winter temperatures drop as low as -10°C at night. This unique
positioning coupled with biodynamic vineyard practices and some
careful winemaking result in astonishingly good wine.
Harmonious and showcasing the distinct terroir of the Corsican
landscape, these wines display a purity of fruit, and saline
freshness that trumpets their origins.
