AOC range

AOC Patrimonio

The AOC range was born from the selection of our most beautiful plots of vines located on the unique terroir of E Croce. It is available in white, red and rosé for the AOC PATRIMONIO and in sweet white for the AOC Muscat du Cap Corse. The wines bear the imprint of their terroir in each vintage; freshness and minerality to give precise and smooth wines.

The colour is a beautiful, dense, deep ruby red. On the nose, beautiful aromas of red fruits: blackcurrant, blackberry and a slight note of liquorice. The mouth is greedy, well structured, full of red fruits and some spices.
