The sommelier Info
This wine is served with
Domaine Alzipratu is located in the north-west of Corsica, in Balagne, near Calvi. The vineyard benefits from a climatic influence coming from the sea but also from the mountain, moreover from Monte Grossu (culminating point 1950 meters). Alzipratu became a leader in Balagne, mainly thanks to its balanced wines.
Alzipratu was created in the 1960s by Baron Henry Louis de La Grange, owner of the Alzipratu convent at the time. Maurice Acquaviva also led the Domaine from 1992, before being taken over by his son, Pierre Acquaviva and his wife Cécilia.
The different grapes are for the most part typically Corsican. Selected for their distinctive features, they contribute to the famous Alzipratu wines' production. In recent years, the Domaine of Alzipratu’s reputation has grown and it is now one of the most qualitative Corsican vineyard. Pierre Acquaviva produces wines with a lot of finesse and minerality, creating wines in appellation Vin Corse Calvi.
