Corsica is remote, rugged, beautiful and unique. It's history involves ancient sea going people, Romans, the Medieval Genovese kingdom, Revolutionary France and of course Napoleon. More recently it was crucial in sparking Nazi resistance during WWII. Through all of this wine has been made and consumed and it's finally getting it's due.

Kermit Lynch, the famed importer, has been a fan for several decades and is the most prolific and important U.S. importer working there. He has most of the top producers now with names like Arena, Abbatucci and Leccia being found at top restaurants in most major cities.

But one of the domaines that flies under the radar still is Marquiliani. This 200 year old domaine was abandoned during the war and then reclaimed by the Amalric family in the 1950's. About 20 years ago Anne Amalric returned to join her father Daniel and focused on growing almonds and olives alongside the Sciaccarellu and Syrah grapes.
