During the early 60s, the Skalli family discovered a plot of land on a flank of the Corsican mountains aptly called Clos Poggiale (“High point” in Corsican). Perched on a small hill, it lay shimmering in the bright sunlight, the blue Mediterranean stretching out below. There, in the heart of the pungent maquis, where olive fragrances intermingle with those of myrtle, rockrose and arbutus, nature has fulfilled the conditions for producing a great wine. Granite and red clay soils force the vines to exceed expectations in grape quality and flavour, generous sunlight and summer heat is tempered by the nocturnal coolness from the neighbouring mountains.
The traditional Syrah, Niellucio (Corsican name of the San Giovese) and Vermentino vines spread their roots and flourish in this chosen, AOC-classified soil to give wines full of charm and nuance. The bunches are stringently selected, each variety is vinified separately to allow this unique micro-terroir to work its wizardry and produce a most exceptional wine.
Each vintage of Clos Poggiale reveals its astonishing, multifaceted personality characterised by full-bodied, fruity roundness and vigour.
