Domaine Fiumicicoli

An outstanding and rare sweet wine from Corsica.

Meet the producer

Domaine Fiumicicoli (pronounced phew-me-chikoli) lies at the heart of Corse Sartène, considered to be one of the best...



Inland from the small coastal resort of Propriano, Domaine Fiumicicoli’s vineyards nestle between the sea and the mountains where they benefit from even temperatures, low rainfall and a high level of sunshine hours per day. On a granite slope with poor, acidic soils, Simon Andreani grows Muscateddu - an old Corsican variety, related to Sciacarello which has all but disappeared today. Grapes are harvested when overripe and are then macerated for eight to ten days under controlled temperatures. Fermentation is blocked by reducing the temperature down to 10°C so that a sugar content of approximately 60g/litre is maintained.

Tasting notes

An exciting sweet red wine from the fragrant Muscateddu grape (related to the red Sciacarello of Corsica), this ruby-coloured, unoaked and unfortified wine brims with aromas of strawberry jam and allspice. The palate is fresh and equally aromatic; resinous, woody flavours mix with cherries and bittersweet orange peel.

Food match

A great match to game paté, cheese, as well as not-so-sweet dark chocolate desserts.
