The Estate and the Vineyard
Located in the North of Corsica and created in the 30s by Gino Lazzarini, the estate was born from the successive purchase of plots. Today, Christophe, the creator’s grandson, manages this 45-hectare farm.
Established on the hillsides facing the Gulf of St.Lawrence, on a mainly clay-limestone terroir with a high stony proportion. It benefits from the Mediterranean climate and the mountain influence and granite, sandstone, limestone, sand and clay soils. As a result, the vineyard finds all the elements of a terroir that gives an exceptional wine, classified Grand Cru.
After a very long tradition of rosés, the production of the wines of the estate has turned towards wines of very high level obtained through the selection of the two great grape varieties of the appellation, the nielluciu in red and the vermentinu in white. They give fabulous and powerful reds thanks to a surprising aromatic palette combining notes of black fruits and red fruits with spicy notes.
