L.N. Mattei was founded by a merchant named Louis-Napoléon Mattei in 1872. He named his aperitif wines after his native Cap Corse, a peninsula of Corsica that juts northward into the Mediterranean.
Cap Corse Rouge is traditionally served neat or on ice with tonic or soda, garnished with citrus peel. It mixes well with rye whiskey, especially so in a Boulevardier.
