Antoine Arena is one of the few Corsican winemakers to give all his acclaim to this native grape variety which exudes a ripe, smooth and perfectly balanced register. More info

Antoine Arena was the first vigneron to replant the Bianco Gentile variety in 1997 and is still one of the only people to cultivate it, so this wine is very special. In 2017 it was produced in a dry style, which was not the case in earlier years. The resulting wine offers up notes of ripe white fruits, honey and pastries and makes an excellent pairing with grilled mullet. Decant to a carafe an hour before serving.

Vin de France Bianco Gentile Antoine Arena serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Sardines grillées, Asperges sauce mousseline, Purée de vitelotte.
