Clos Venturi ' Brama,' Carcghjolu Neru, Corsica 2022

My philosophy is the same everywhere: high environmental value, organic agriculture, biodynamic agriculture, permaculture, breeding, bee-keeping ... I made these choices for the preservation of my island, my land, the men and women who live there and, more globally, the planet. I am not a utopian, nor an esoteric dogmatic, I am simply a farmer in love with nature and every day I work on this alchemy, I try to observe it, understand it and accompany it simply to pay homage to it. This makes me and my wines better, if not better, then at least consistent with what we are and what our land expresses.” - Manu Venturi

Manu Venturi is located in Ponte Leccia, where roads lead to Bastia, Ajaccio and Calvi. Most of Corsica's wine regions are defined by their differentiating soil structure but here in Ponte Leccia you find sandstone, basalt, granite and blue slate all in one place. His 25 hectares of vines are interplanted with 19 different native Corsican varieties surrounded by scrubby forest. The property is pristine, from an almost religious approach to biodynamic agriculture to the meticulous organization of the sheep, chickens, horses, and cows that coexist on the hill. The results are wines that enchanted us with their layered texture, freshness, and extraordinary aromatic intensity, evoking the heady scents of the Corsican maquis - a mix of eucalyptus, juniper, rosemary, yellow immortelle, myrtle, sage, mint, thyme, and lavender.
