    Winemaker Notes

    Domaine U Stiliccionu is located in the community of Serra-di-Ferro, a promontory point in southwestern Corsica. Kaliste has a pale-red color with bright black cherry fruit aromas tinged with smoke, leather and tobacco. As the wine begins to breath in the glass, more dusky, earthy, dark-chocolate flavors emerge, and it’s all held together with a good level of acidity and solid tannic structure.

    Kalliste translates to the “most beautiful one” in Greek. It is what the Greeks called Corsica.

    Blend: 80% Sciaccarello, 20% Nielluccio

    Domaine U Stiliccionu, Corsica, France
    Image of winery
    The vineyard was planted in 1961, and is located 8 km from Porto Pollo in the town of Serra-di-Ferro, just behind Antoine Arena’s Carco from Patrimonio. Planted on granite and shale soil and facing east, it has full sun exposure from dawn till dusk.

    The original proprietor Francois Casabianca was anxious to perpetuate the winemaking traditions of his family, so in April 2005 he decided to hand over the reins of the estate to his grandson, Sebastien Poly. Poly gained much of his knowledge from working at vineyards in Hungary and New Zealand. In 2008, Domaine U Stiliccionu was certified biodynamic and expanded to six hectares.

    A mountainous, Mediterranean island covered in vineyards, Corsica, while closer to Italy in proximity and history, is today under France's political jurisdiction. The island is home to a mix of Italian and French grapes, typically planted at high elevations. Niellucciu (Sangiovese), Sciacarellu (Mammolo), and Vermentino (Rolle) are the main grape varieties of Corsica, and account for about two thirds of all Corsican wines produced.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
