Marie Brigitte Poli Holds Grande Cuvee Clos Teddi White Vermentinu and Red Niellucciu

10 producers were featured at Wines of Corsica tasting in New York this past Wednesday (April 30, 2014).

Among them Clos Teddi (AOC Patrimonio) founded by Joseph Poli in 1970. His daughter Marie-Brigitte took over the helm in 1997 first in sales then she put her imprint on winemaking itself with Vintage 1999.


After sampling some of Marie-Brigitte Poli's creations, I captured her holding Grande Cuvee White (100% Vermentinu), rich, floral and aromatic (the one with wet label) and hearty Grande Cuvee Red (100% Niellucciu) which she says calls for marinated grilled game.
