Some journeys have a major impact on the course of a life…
An experience in California changed Dominique Rossi’s outlook on his profession: "Especially in terms of how to organise the wine production company" explained the current owner of Domaine Aliso Rossi. For several years, the winemaker has worked his grandfather’s ancient vines, helped by his wife Sophie, who is also an engineer-oenologist.
Sophie and Dominique’s passion and taste for innovation has gradually transformed this land, situated at the heart of the Patrimonio and Muscat du Cap Corse appellations, into an exceptional vineyard.
Set on steep, sunny hillsides, the vines benefit from a varied landscape: some are close to the sea, some near the mountains… Here the soil is schistose, further on it is clayey or chalky… This diversity produces a palette of subtle and intense flavours, some of which may be called a work of art! The aptly-named "Cuvée des Artistes" (Artist’s Vintage), illustrated each year by a different Corsican painter or sculptor, is a collector’s vintage and regularly wins awards.
The local grape varieties Niellucciu, Vermentinu and Muscat à Petits Grains are grown using traditional methods: "What we’d like to do, of course, is to continue to modernise the estate… but keep our traditional agricultural techniques. That’s what gives our wines their distinctive character". Come and try the wines on the estate or in the wine-tasting cellar in Saint-Florent...
