"Protected by the maritime influences of the Golfe de Saint-Florent, vines cultivated on the limestone soils of Patrimonio's hillsides rarely require treatments of any kind, so Eric's practices are essentially organic (though without certification). Niellucio, genetically linked to Sangiovese, thrives in this ideally situated inlet at the north end of the island, and when yields are limited, results in wines with more freshness and finesse than those made from its Tuscan cousin. Also, the fresh, aromatic whites made from Vermentino rival the best of Sardinia, Corsica's neighbor to the south." - Importer
Total destemming. Temperature-controlled cuvaison of approximately three weeks with remontage (pumping over) twice daily. Elevage for all three wines in temp-controlled vats. RosÃ© is produced entirely from direct press juice and bottled in February after harvest. Neither RosÃ© or Blanc undergoes malo-lactic fermentation. Blanc remains on lees until mid-December and is bottled in February. Rouge remains in vat for one year and undergoes light plaque filtration before bottling.
About Clos Alivu,
In 2005, Eric Poli sold his interest in the familyâs 75-acre Vin de Corse estate,
Domaine de Piana, to his brother, Antoine. With the proceeds, he bought 7.4 acres
(3 hectares) of old-vine Niellucio and Vermentino (aka Malvoisie de Corse) on the
terraced Poggio dâOletta in the heart of Patrimonio, the oldest and arguably best
appellation on this mountainous Mediterranean island. An important factor in
Ericâs decision was the fact that his wife, Marie-Brigitte, is the Owner/Director of
Clos Teddi, the Patrimonio domaine founded by her father in 1970.
Eric expanded Clos Alivuâs modest holdings with the purchase of 4.3 acres of vines
in the commune of Santo Pietro di Tenda in 2012. Today, he manages Clos Alivuâs
11.7 acres of vines and the 86.5 acres of Clos Teddi. Eric has also assumed
responsibility for the winemaking of both domaines, while Marie-Brigitte handles
commercial affairs for the two companies. The brands are marketed separately
outside of Corsica, but at home the Polis share a popular retail tasting room in the heart of the picturesque harbor village
of Saint-Florent where they showcase the wines of both Patrimonio domaines. The boutique also features a full range of
IGP Ãle de BeautÃ© wines made from the 108 acres of vines Eric planted in 2007 near his hometown of Linguizzetta on the
east coast of the island.
