Clos Marfisi - Uva

11-14% ABV 25 % Minustellu, 25% Carcaghjolu Neru (both local, oft overlooked grapes), and 50% Niellucciu, All sourced from the Ravagnola vineyard. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, half is direct press juice, half is fermented whole cluster. In terms of style, the red wines undergo gentle macerations that soften them, bringing extra freshness. Maturation in concrete vats, demi-muids and amphora allow the micro-oxygenation necessary for good ageing potential whilst avoiding the effects of an oaky barrel. The wine making culture in Corsica is one of the most traditional in France, with domains often run on a small scale and indigenous grape varieties grown above all else. In Patrimonio, the most northerly appellation on the island, some growths like ‘Grotte di Sole’ are becoming recognised across the world, and this is thanks to the honest and exceptional work of wine makers like Julie Marfisi and her brother Mathieu. They represent the 5th generation to produce superb cuvées at Clos Marfisi.
