Domaine Antoine Marie ARENA - Patriminio - Corsica
Arena Family, among the best Patrimonio wines
Among the Arena, we work as a family! The legendary winemaker Antoine Arena, the one who proved to the world that he could produce very fine wines in Corsica, separated his vineyard from Patrimonio in three: each of his two sons takes part of it (they were already working with their father for many years but now it is officially divided).
After studying History and Geo, Antoine-Marie returned to the vineyard in 2004 and was mainly concerned with the works of the cellar and vinification.
Since the division, he is the only master on board his new vineyard, consisting of vines located on the soil of Carco, composed of nielluccio for red and bianco gentile, vermentinu and muscat for whites.
The winemaker took advantage of the superb 2015 vintage to propose two new vintages baptized "bianchi" for white, and "Memoria" for red. All in delicacy with a lot of freshness.
We must not forget the specificity of Antoine-Marie Arena: he works his muscats (from the terroir of Morte Maio, whose red part was preserved by his father during the division) without mutating them, with 13% Alcohol only. A magnificent result!
Note that bianco gentile is an autochthonous Corsican grape that had almost disappeared in favor of Muscat. The Arena family replanted a plot of it in 1997 and others like Yves Canarelli did the same.
