Domaine Fiumicicoli (pronounced phew-me-chikoli) lies at the heart of Corse Sartène, considered to be one of the best of Corsica's nine appellations and close to where the 13th century, Pisan-style bridge, Pont de Spina Cavallu (pictured on their wine labels), spans the river Rizzanesse. The domaine’s vineyards rise up from the slopes of the river on arenaceous and granitic soils, ideally suited to growing the traditional Corsican grape varieties of Sciacarello (from which the domaine makes its rosés), Vermentino (for its whites) and Nielluccio (for its reds, usually blended with a little Syrah).

On a granite slope with poor, acidic soils, Simon Andreani grows Muscateddu - an old Corsican variety, related to Sciacarello which has all but disappeared today. Grapes are harvested when overripe and are then macerated for eight to ten days under controlled temperatures. Fermentation is blocked by reducing the temperature down to 10°C so that a sugar content of approximately 60g/litre is maintained. An exciting sweet red wine from the fragrant Muscateddu grape (related to the red Sciacarello of Corsica), this ruby-coloured, unoaked and unfortified wine brims with aromas of strawberry jam and allspice. The palate is fresh and equally aromatic; resinous, woody flavours mix with cherries and bittersweet orange peel. A great match to game paté, cheese, as well as not-so-sweet dark chocolate desserts.

Tasting Note:
This ruby-coloured, unoaked and unfortified wine brims with aromas of strawberry jam and allspice. The palate is fresh and equally aromatic with a long finish.
