The Clos Signadore is based in Poggio d’Olerra, near the mountainous part of Corsica and is planted with 40 year old Nielluccio vines (local variety very similar to Sangiovese).  Christophe Ferrandis established the Domaine in 2001 converting to organic production in 2010.

Having previously made wines with Domaine Pibarnon in Bandol he originally moved to Corscia to be a consultant with the co-operative.  When he discovered the older vines he was able to take a few hectares for himself.

Clay limestone soils with schist. 45-60 day maceration in stainless steel, followed by 24 months in old demi-muids. Minimal sulphur added at bottling.
