Cuvée presentation

This cuvée comes from the 3-hectare, east-facing Carco lieu-dit. Vines of Vermentino and Nielluccio grow on limestone soils and thrive thanks to their certified organic viticulture and biodynamic-inspired methods. Generally speaking, Nielluccio gives powerful, elegant wines. At the domain, the grapes macerate for 15 days in concrete vats and are matured in 600 and 800-litre demi-muids for 14 months. This is a refined and delicate wine from the Arena family. Harmonious, the tannins are perfectly integrated and enveloped by notes of black fruits and sweet spices.

Information about domain Antoine Arena

A figurehead for Patrimonio, and one of the most charismatic Corsican winegrowers, Antoine Arena produces wines of extraordinary precision. He has managed the property since 1980 (which originally only consisted of three hectares of vines) and was joined by his sons Jean-Baptiste and Antoine-Marie in 2004. The vineyard now covers 11 hectares, with red (Nielluccio) and white grapes (Vermentino, Bianco Gentile and Muscat à Petits Grains for the sweet wines). No chemical fertilizers or herbicides are used; and in the winery, the most natural techniques possible are employed. The Arena's philosophy, besides the careful observation and ploughing of the soil, is to bring out the best in their terroir; to accomplish this, a plot by plot approach is taken. The vineyard is managed according to biodynamic principles and has AB organic certification.
