A cuvée made for long aging that offers exceptional length on the palate. More info

A deliciously aromatic red from Yves Leccia. Its nose is brimming with red and black fruits lifted by liquorice notes. The palate is structured by nice tannins and has a nice length. The cuvée is made up of Nielluciu and Grenache grown traditionally on clay-limestone soils. The grapes are harvested by hand before being vatted for two weeks with regular pumping over. The 20-day fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats. The wine is then matured for 12 months in stainless-steel vats. Made for cellaring, this cuvée will go very well with dishes in sauce.

Information about domain E. Croce

Yves Leccia continued at his family property in the early 1980s, after completing his studies in oenology. However, in 2004, he set up his own property with his partner Sandrine: E Croce. It now consists of 15 hectares in Patrimonio, some of the vines are from his father and the rest are rented. The plots, in particular E Croce and Partinelone, are located on clay-limestone and schist terroirs, south-west facing, at the base of the mountains that extend into Cap Corse. The maritime influence of Saint Florent Bay brings maturity and freshness.
The vineyard is planted with four main varieties: Vermentino, Nielluccio and Grenache for the reds, and Ugni Blanc for the Vin de Pays white wines. The property naturally produces Patrimonio, in all three colours, and also Ile de Beauté Vin de Pays (red and white), a red Vin Doux Naturel and some Cap Corse Muscat. The property does not have any certification, but the soil is ploughed and only organic fertilizers are used.
