In 1872, a merchant named Louis-Napoleon Mattei named his aperitif wine after his native Cap Corse, a peninsula of Corsica that juts northward into the Mediterranean. A true quinquina blanc, and unique among aperitif wines. The profile of the Cap Corse Mattei blanc aperitif wine is defined by its distinctly Corsican components. Its all-mistelle base is of Vermentinu and Muscat Petit Grains, lending terrific minerality, acidity and floral tones. The local Cedrat (aka citron) adds a unique citrus aroma and a silky texture.
