Variety

100% Vermentino

A Mandria is a Corsican white wine from the noble terroir of Patrimonio produced entirely from the Vermentinù grape. It's a complex wine that is perfect with Mediterranean dishes and can improve with several years in bottle. A Mandria means "sheepfold" in Corsican. This cuvée comes from a one hectare, northeast facing lieu-dit named Morsaglia that sits on limestone and clay soils. The vines were planted in 2006 and are hand-harvested in small bins, fermented with native yeasts, aged on the lees in stainless steel, and see no additions beyond sulfur before bottling.
