Clos Venturi

The vines of Clos Venturi are rooted in Sandstone, basalt, granite and blue slate. Together with the continental climate of the Central Corsica and the influence of the Mediterranean, the soils bring freshness, minerality and maturity to the wines in equal measure. The stony environment, however, contributes above all purity and barrenness in the wines.

The results are expressive, independent and lively wines.

The founder Jean Vico has cultivated the vineyards on the French Mediterranean island only with autochthonous grape varieties. Vermentinu, Sciaccarellu, Niellucciu, Carcaghjolu Neru, Aleatico and Minustellu bring even experienced wine connoisseurs to the limits of their knowledge. As a tribute to Jean Vico, wines are still named after him today.
