L.N. Mattei Cap Corse Quinquina Blanc Aperitif (750 ml)
This Corsican classic is a perfect place to go for warm weather appetizers. The blend of bittersweet flavors, minerals and acidity is a flexible companion for basic spritzes or more inventive cocktails made from a base of local Vermentinu and Muscat Petit Grains grape varieties flavored with bitter quinquina bark and the islands' legendary local citrus. This is utter fun, fine on its own with a gentle chill, triggering things ready to liven up a party or set you into ultimate relaxation.
Tasting Notes: Notes contain lemons kissed by the sun, raw sugar, fresh herbs and a soft bitterness. Flavored with cinchona bark (quinine), which adds spice and depth in the mid and back palate.
Serving Suggestions: Fantastic on ice with tonic or soda, and even more so with a pour of gin or an agave spirit.
