After qualifying as a vet, Etienne Suzzoni took over the family domaine in 1983, inheriting a well-run estate established by his father, who had the foresight to plant Niellucciu (Sangiovese) vines in the early 1970s. Etienne has put in the hard graft ever since, cultivating local varieties. The estate now comprises 64 hectares of organically farmed vines, 12 hectares of olive groves and a further 30 hectares of grazing land for their large herd of cattle to roam. These island wines, produced between the sea and the mountains on old granitic soils in the northwest of Corsica, are well worth attention.
