A superb white from the schist terroir of Patrimonio, this Morta Maio from Jean-Baptiste Arena is a real gem.  More info

This 100% Vermentinu showcases the terroir of the Patrimonio appellation perfectly. Raised in stainless-steel vats, this cuvée offers fine notes of reduction; it is a great cellaring wine and can, according to its producer, age beautifully for 30 years. In the winery and vineyard alike, no inputs are allowed, only 1 gram of Sulphur during harvesting so as to stabilize the wines. This white cuvée is highly digestible in youth. The vines are still young as they were planted in 2014 yet they are massal selections of very old vines.

Patrimonio Morta Maio Jean-Baptiste Arena serve at a temperature of 13°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Côte de Bœuf au barbecue, Espadon mariné au citron au barbecue, Faisan.

Information about domain Jean-Baptiste Arena

Son of Antoine Arena, Jean-Baptiste Arena now grows grapes on the terroirs of Grotte di Sole (both red and white) as well as Patrimonio (white). The domain currently spans 5 hectares; he is progressively taking over the running of the family domain. The philosophy is much the same as that of his father: intransigence in the vineyard and winery alike, inputs are banned and respect for the terroir is the top priority. The vineyard is tended biodynamically and all the work is done by the family. The wines are full of energy and purity, raised in vats and concrete, with meticulous maturation periods. Year after year, Jean-Baptiste produces highly digestible wines.
