Vermentinu, nicknamed the ‘Corsican Malvoisie’, is the most widely-planted white grape variety on the island and represents 17% of the island’s total planting.

It produces top quality white wines, among the best in the Mediterranean, thanks to their distinctive character and pronounced floral aromas.
Pale yellow in colour with green highlights, Vermentinu is recognisable by its elegant and complex nose where notes of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and yellow flowers (gorse) mingle with those of white fruit (pear, apple, quince), dried nuts (almond), and citrus and tropical fruits.
On the palate, the wines are elegantly balanced, full-bodied and have a long, sometimes mineral finish.
