Made with a base of Corsican white wine (Vermentino and other varietals), this sunny-hued aperitivo mixes fuity and floral notes for an ideal warm-weather sipper. Crisp apple and white blossoms entice the nose, while the palate offers breezy hints of melon and honeysuckle sweetness, finishing slightly drying with mild grapefruit pith bitterness.

Importer Notes

The profile of the Cap Corse Mattei BLANC aperitif wine is defined by its distinctly Corsican components. Its all-mistelle base is of Vermentinu and Muscat Petit Grains, lending a terrific minerality, acidity and floral tones. The local Cedrat (aka citron) adds unique citrus aroma and a silky texture. Since its creation in 1872 by Louis-Napoléon Mattei, Cap Corse Mattei is the oldest and best known aperitif of Corsica. Still today family owned, and all macerations, aging and bottling are done in house. 

As a quinquina, Cap Corse Mattei BLANC is flavored with cinchona bark (quinine), which adds spice and depth in the mid and back palate.
