Route de Lévie
20100 Sartene

Name of the estate: AOP Corse Sartène - Domaine Fiumicicoli
Area of the estate: 70 ha
Viticulture: Organic
Vinification: Organic
Geology: Our vineyard is in the heart of one of the first wine regions of Corsica: Sartène. The numerous medals obtained, in particular at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris, rewarded our qualitative efforts and gave our vineyard the acclaim it deserves.
Presentation of the wines:
⦁    Our whites are lively and aromatic. In the nose, you can discover citrus notes (grapefruit, lemon, etc.). They should preferably be consumed young.
⦁    The Vassilia vintage, mainly based on Nielluccio, benefits from aging in oak barrels for one year. Complex notes influenced by the maquis are complemented by the finesse and elegance of the aromas acquired by the aging, vanilla and pepper. This wine will take its full expression after three or four years and will improve over ten years.
Grape varieties: The traditional grape varieties, Nielluccio, Sciaccarello, Vermentino, find their full expression in this terroir. Old-fashioned cultivation methods (plowing, stripping, etc.) combined with the refusal to use chemical fertilizers, weedkillers, or synthetic pesticides give our grapes a natural and organic quality.
Presentation of the estate:  Domaine Fiumicicoli is located near Spin'a Cavalu, a Genoese bridge from the 13th century, along the road that joins the famous Aiguilles de Bavella via the Alta Rocca. Created in 1964 by Félix Andreani while he was still a teacher, the vineyard is planted with traditional grape varieties of the Sartène appellation, but it also shelters ampelographic treasures such as Barbarossa, Bianco Gentile, or even the Muscateddu, which are quite rare, giving a red Muscat which seduced our tasting committee. The vines, older than the average (22 to 40 years), are trained and cultivated without chemical fertilizers or weedkillers. Managed by Felix and his son Simon, the 45-hectare estate is one of the greatest successes of southern viticulture. Indeed, here, the uprooted vines have been replaced to ensure the typicity and quality of the wines.
