"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. Hand-harvested in small bins. Native yeast fermentation, aged on the lees in stainless steel. No additions beyond sulfur before bottling."
