Domaine Vaccelli

True to the identity of Corsica, the Domaine Vaccelli. represents first and foremost a history family, a transmission of soil by bloodline, and a sanguine love for the earth.
Gérard Courrèges took on the reins of the estate, but prevented any change to his dad Alain's cellar. Instead, the great changes would occur in the vineyard.

A must-taste, the granit cuvée in red counts among the finest wines of the island. The concrete eggs and half-muids of the estate age a very…
racy sciaccarellu, gracious but not lacking concentration.
The nose blends crushed strawberries, scrubland grasses and peony. The palate extends notes of sanguine orange, with great length.
