Corsica is a French island in the Mediterranean that produces wine using unique grape varieties and winemaking techniques. The island's wine industry has a long history dating back to ancient times and today is known for producing high quality and distinctive wines that reflect the island's unique terroir.
Corsican wines are produced from several grape varieties, including Vermentino, Nielluccio, Sciacarello and Muscat. The island's vineyards are located in different terroirs, including the mountains, hills and coastal areas, adding to the diverse range of wines produced.
Corsican white wines are typically light and crisp, with refreshing acidity and aromas of citrus, apple and spices. The island's red wines are known for their complexity and structure, with flavors of red and black fruits, such as cherries and blackberries, and notes of herbs, spices and earth.
In addition to still wines, Corsica is also known for producing a unique sparkling wine called Cap Corse, made from Muscat grapes. This wine is slightly sweet and has aromas of honey and white flowers.
Corsican winemakers use both traditional and modern winemaking techniques, with many choosing to use organic and biodynamic practices to produce wines that reflect the island's natural beauty and biodiversity.
