The village of Aghione is not far from the old Roman capital of Corsica on the eastern coast of the island, poetically known as the Costa Serena. The Amalric family has farmed Domaine de Marquiliani since the 1950s, nearly twenty years after the two hundred-year-old domaine was destroyed in a fire and abandoned. The Amalrics bought the property and replanted the vineyards. Daniel Amalric earned great recognition for his wines, as he was the first to plant Niellucciu and Syrah on this side of the island. In 1995, he was joined by his daughter, Anne, an agricultural chemist who had returned from mainland France to take her place at the family farm. Her wine made an instant impression on Kermit Lynch, who raves, “Drinking her rosé is like drinking a cloud. There’s an absolute weightlessness to it. Nothing is left on the palate but perfume.”

Tasting NotesThe grapes are hand-harvested, direct pressed, and cold soaked for three days, creating a crisp and crunchy wine, oozing with notes of strawberry grapefruit, and salty sea air. A perfect aperitif wine!
