Wine Region: Corsica - France
Grape: Niellucciu, Sciaccarellu, Carcaghjolu Neru
Tasting notes: Superb nose of English rose and violet; the spicy mouth of cloves and sweet pepper, fresh and ripe. Nice delicate oak maturing. No roughness, a sweet, velvety texture that will never tear... And then I don‘t know what of Corsica, a hint of immortal, maybe. For Manu, this Cuvée Chiesa Nera "Black church" is precisely these of transmission between generations, she reminds the moments spent with the grandfather and his love for his island.
About the winery:
The vineyard at the origin of Clos Venturi was planted in 1901 by Jean Vico. In 1987, the Acquaviva-Venturi family took over the estate, which has been running it ever since.
The Clos Venturi vineyard covers 31 hectares (15 hectares in red and 16 hectares in white). Its original location makes it the furthest Corsican terroir from the sea and one of the highest. The vineyard, placed on a geological fault, is made up of many soils.
