SAPARALE, A HISTORICAL CORSICAN WINE

Domaine Saparale was created in the middle of the 19th century by Philippe de Rocca Serra, a lawyer and financial advisor who had traveled extensively in Africa. He undertook the construction of a vast property and planted a hundred hectares of vines, mainly Vermentino and Sciaccarello. After a meteoric rise and a gold medal in the 1900s, the vineyard was ravaged by phylloxera. It was bought in 1995 by Philippe Farinelli who did everything possible to bring the Domaine de Saparale back to life.
