The cuvée Ribbe Rosse red from Clos Culombu is intense on the nose, black fruits and greed predominate (jam, coulis). The mouth is fresh and there is a nice roundness despite firm tannins. The tobacco aromas are subtle and give some relief to the general structure.

Ribbe Rosse is an exceptional cuvée, born on a particular terroir of ancient alluviums and clay-silty soil. It can be kept for 10 to 15 years. An aging in oak barrels of 500 L from 1 to 5 years was achieved for this great red wine of Corsica.

Organic wine

The domain

The estate is located on the municipalities of Lumio and Montegrosso in the heart of the balagne, on the side of Calvi.

Culombu, family history

The history of Clos Culombu began in 1973 with the Suzzoni family.
In 1986 the son Etienne took the reindeer of the estate to extend its area to 64 ha of vine and 12 ha of olive trees. More recently in 2016 it was Paul-Antoine the son of Etienne Suzzoni who vinified the 40th vintage of Clos Culombu. This vineyard, in organic farming, has been managed for more than thirty years by the Suzzoni Family. Clos Columbu begins its conversion to biodynamics.

Clos Culombu Corsican grape varieties

The emblematic grape varieties of this Corse Calvi wine AOC are represented: Nielluccio, sciaccarello, vermentino, grenache and cinsault. Etienne Suzzoni makes a point of honor to reintroduce old native varieties such as Minustello and Carcajolo nero for reds and morescone and bianco nice for whites. Domaine Culombu has become Calvi’s wine reference. And for the little story, the culombu is a trumpet-shaped shell used by the shepherds to call themselves from one hill to another...
