L.N. Mattei Cap Corse Blanc Quinquina


Unit price per

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 a terrifc minerality, acidity and floral tones. The local Cedrat (aka citron) adds unique citrus aroma and a silky texture. As a quinquina, the cinchona bark (quinine) adds spice and depth in the mid and back palate. Fantastic on ice with tonic or soda, and even more so with a pour of gin or an agave spirit. Since its creation in 1872 by Louis-Napoléon Mattei, Cap Corse Mattei is the oldest and best known aperitif of Corsica. Still today family owned, and all macerations, aging and bottling are done in house.
