Wine of Ajaccio appellation
The Ajaccio AOC covers the entire district of Ajaccio as well as the canton of Petreto-Bicchisano to the south. The Ajaccio AOC was recognised by a decree of June 1980. Located in the Gulf of Ajaccio, the vineyards are split into distinct sectors: The north shore, steep and unsuitable for farming, the south shore with a broader, softer landscape, allowing men to settle and plant vines there in the late 19th century, and the two river valleys facing northeast/southwest, whose rivers, the Gravona and the Prunelli, follow into the Gulf of Ajaccio. 

The identity of the wines from Ajaccio comes from the homogeneity factors, such as the geological, climate or cultural features that unite them, and which prevail over the differentiating factors. The 240 hectares of Ajaccio vineyards permit an annual production of around 8,200 hectolitres of wine. 

According to the appellation's official specifications, the red and rosé Ajaccio wines must be produced from a minimum of 60% Sciaccarellu and the whites, from a minimum of 80% Vermentino. The Sciaccarellu, a high-quality grape variety with a strong character, was in fact born in the Ajaccio area. It gives the wines unusual aromas of almonds and blackcurrants. Here, the reds have broad shoulders, the rosés have class and the whites, made from the Vermentino, display a distinctive floral character. The Ajaccio wines produced by Domaine Comte Abbatucci and Domaine Comte Peraldi bring out these characters to the full.
