Corsican wines from seven estates will be present at the Secrets from Corsica wine-tasting event at Baranis, Provençal Food & Wine, (in central London) on 17 October 2011. There will be the opportunity to enjoy unique wines from producers including Domaine Cordoliani, Domaine Santini, Domaine Culombu, Domaine Sant’Armettu, Domaine de Tanella and Domaine Canarelli.


CIVCORSE, the Corsican wine board, and its representative in Britain, Guillaume Rodet, will host a Corsican wine-tasting event for journalists and trade professionals. It will be held on 17 October at Baranis, Provençal Food & Wine (in London) from 11am to 5pm.

Corsica has a considerably diverse range of natural and geological sites. This, coupled with the use of modern technical solutions and ancient traditions and expertise, has underscored the unique character of Corsican wines. Corsica also hosts a significant variety of soil types across its hillside vineyards, along with a fantastic jigsaw puzzle of mesoclimates. Both of these factors determine the profiles of the fine wines produced.

Thanks to powerful reds, characterful rosés, renowned muscats, and white wines that are some of the finest from the Mediterranean region, Corsica has taken its place amongst the producers of the world’s greatest wines.

Corsican wine producers’ use of fine local-grape varieties provides a welcome relief from the identical varieties that are used all over the world. The island’s grape varieties include Niellucciu, Sciaccarellu and Vermentinu.

Niellucciu is the dominant grape variety of the Patriminio region of northern Corsica. Although “Niellu” in Corsica’s local dialect means black, dark or hard, Niellucciu can produce very fine and elegant rosés.

The granitic region of western Corsica is home to Sciaccarellu, the main grape variety of this region. This grape produces wines that have a peppery bouquet of wild flowers, red fruit, spices and smoky wood.

The Vermentinu grape generates wines that are amongst the best whites from the Mediterranean area. Alcohol levels are quite high in these wines, and so there is a good depth and volume on the palate.

Corsica is situated 300 kilometres off the southern coast of France on the same latitude as Rome and Barcelona. Its climate is tempered, with hot, dry summers and mild winters. The local winds, which are varied, act as thermal regulators and ventilators for the island’s vineyards. This limits the need for fungal-disease treatments, which is particularly favourable to the balance and quality of the grapes.
