This Patrimonio is generous and ages beautifully.
It comes from a technique at the service of the tradition in 0%Niellucciu grape variety.
The clay-limestone terroir, unique in Corsica, best exalts the typical qualities of Niellucciu.
The nose reveals aromas of red fruits, a pleasant freshness with notes of sweet spices.
The mouth with these aromas of red fruits and these accents of garrigue.
Domaine Gentile was very early convinced of the need to respect the environment, along with tradition and typicity.
Soil work - ploughing, stripping, picking - is necessary in the face of weedkillers or non-cultivation. No use of chemical fertilizers. Every gesture, every action, is thought out because it is better to have an effective prophylaxis than a treatment, even if it is preventive.
The Gentile Estate is in the logic of organic farming and each action is dictated by this policy of reason.
The work of the vineyard can be summed up in five words: biology, environment, prophylaxis, tradition and respect.
After manual and sorted harvests, the very meticulous cellar work can begin: sorting table, rotating maceration tanks, pneumatic press, thermo-regulated fermentation....The various stages of winemaking, clarification, stabilization and breeding follow one another in an air-conditioned cellar.
Use of insulated vats that produce negative cold to stabilize wines; it is favoured a natural action on the preservation of wines.
A bottled farm, in a buried and air-conditioned cellar, allows to offer wines rested and ready to drink.
The cellar work can also be summed up in five words: health, environment, identity, tradition and respect.
