Giacometti-VDF-Sempre-Cuntentu-2014

Giacometti, VDF Sempre Cuntentu, 2014

Sempre Cuntentu is a Vin de France made from 100% Sciaccarellu planted in the soils of Patrimonio. It is rare to find the grape in this part of Corsica (usually Niellucciu) but the Giacometti’s have a parcel that they have isolated to make this special wine. It is grown on granite with a touch of clay, harder less decomposed granite than in Balagna. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tank and aged on fine lees for 9 months in stainless steel tank. Despite its big, bold fruit character and full body it also has a Beaujolais-like quality of drinkability. Unfined and unfiltered. Wild and delicious.
