Domaine Santa Giulietta Vin de Corse Blanc
WHY WE LOVE IT
- White wines are somewhat rare in Corsica, making up 10% of total production on the island. Such a nice example of Vermentinu
Varietal Composition: 100% Vermentinu
Elaboration: The grapes are harvested in the morning to protect the freshness and avoid oxidation. Draining of juices and refrigeration at 8°C. Short maceration at low temperature, fermentation at 15°C in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Nice straw colour with green hues. The nose expresses floral and fresh notes. The taste is aromatic and powerful, lean minerality and subtle smokiness with a nice touch of acidity on the finish. A Vermentinu with a strong personnality.
Domaine Santa Giulietta has been part of the Stefani family for many generations. Their 75 hectare domaine is situated on top of the Pianiccia plateau, in the Tallone region of the Eastern plain of Corsica. The vineyards are comprised mostly of red clay soils, with perfect sun exposure for maximum maturity of the vines. Additionally the vines also benefit from hot and windy days in the summer with cool nights thanks to their proximity to the island’s mountains.
