The wine story

Near the village of Aghione on the Costa Serena, on the western side of the beautiful Mediterranean island of Corsica, the ancient Vetriccie domain was bought by the Barcelo family in 1966. The Barcelo family have made wine for four generations. Today, it is run by Daniel Barcelo.

On 120 hectares, the domain produces high quality red, white and rosé wines, using local grape varieties best adapted to the climate and soil. These varieties are also grown in Italy, sometimes with different names. For instance, The Niellucio is called San Giovese and used in Chianti. The Sciacarello comes from Toscany. That is because Corsica was Italian and only became French in 1789.

For this wine, harvesting is done every day for ten days, picking only the matured grapes. The grapes are destemmed and fermented in controlled temperature.

Favorite Pairing

Goat or ewe cheese, red meat like beef or lamb, will pair well with this wine. Try also pasta dishes and Italian recipes with plenty of herbs, onions, garlic and oregano.

The Region

Corsica is a mountainous island 160 km south of the French Riviera.

The West coast is very steep above the sea, with spectacular landscapes.

The Eastern slopes are more gentle and there are 1650 hectares of vineyards in the vast plain around the antique port of Aleria, where the Greeks and the Romans introduced olive trees and vines several centuries BC.
