Type: White Wine
Nicolas Mariotti Bindi returned to Corsica after deciding that working as a lawyer was not his true calling. He was seeking a life in winemaking and quickly set about making it happen, first by way of Moulin-à-Vent in Beaujolais, and then with stages closer to home. With the generosity of another producer, Domaine Orenga de Gaffory, he was given the opportunity to farm five hectares of vines, and was able to produce his first vintage in 2007. Nicolas has worked tirelessly to build the estate up to fifteen hectares of vines within the Patrimonio AOC, all certified organic.
This wine comes from a single hectacre parcel of rich clay and limestone soils. Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks and bottled without fining or filtration. The result of a hot vintage (2018), blended with an early harvest (2019) is a well-balanced, highly aromatic Vermentino. Crisp and minerally, with a saline edge and lovely texture.
