Vermentino

Vermentino, often associated with Corsica or Sardinia in Italy, offers both light white and rosé styles of wine. What most people don’t know is it’s actually a secret ingredient in many Provence Rosé wines! Whether oaked or un-oaked, Vermentino wines tend to be big, herbal, and ripe-fruit flavored with genuine interest. Well-deserving of more attention, this varietal is producing table wines of real character.

Corsica, France

Although closer to Italy, Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea that has been under French rule since 1769 and considered alongside the other 26 regions of France. Corsica offers a variety of wines from dry white wines to subtle rosé’s and light reds; Generally made to be sipped young, chilled, and sitting on their world-renown picturesque beaches. Corsica’s influence from being close to Italy certainly shows as two of their predominant wines are the Italian classic grapes, Vermentino and Sangiovese. Even with a Mediterranean climate, winemakers here have expanded their diverse portfolio’s with grapes including Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, and Carignan. Key Corsica wine districts are Ajaccio, Patrimonio, Calvi, Sartene, Porto-Vecchio, Coteaux-du-Cap-Corse, Muscat-du-Cap-Corse, and Figari; All featuring their own winemaking styles. Enjoy these lovely Corsican wines as aperitifs or as an accompaniment to your Mediterranean meal. 

Christopher Ferrandis was born in Marseilles to a family with strong roots in Corsica. After working for several years at Domaine Pibarnon in Bandol, he moved to Corsica, where he worked as a consultant for a cooperative. In 2001, Christopher found a few hectares of old vines in Poggio d’Oletta, the inland mountainous part of the Patrimonio AOC and established Clos Signadore.

Since its inception, the domaine has avoided the use of chemicals in the vineyards. They only use mechanical weeding, and no pesticides or herbicides are sprayed on the soil. The domaine hopes to receive its organic AB certification soon.

The property was planted with a small amount of Vermentino and forty year-old Nielucciu vines, the local red grape of Corsica which is closely related to Sangiovese. The vines are divided among four distinct terroirs, which blend together to make a sum greater than its parts. In addition to the flagship bottling Clos Signadore, the domaine also produces the cuvée A Mandria in Red, White, and Rosé.
