Domaine Sant Armettu cuvée Minustellu 2020 (IGP Île de Beauté)

The Minustellu variety, native to southern Corsica, continues to show qualities to deserve to be produced in monocépage. The granitic and clayey soils of the southwest of the island are the most suitable to help express all the potential of this variety that many people compare with Syrah. If we bottle Minustellu at 1oo%, the name that will appear on the label will be Beauty Island (Île de Beauté). Let's find out how it tastes three years after bottling.

Medium-high opacity, which manages to color the tears with a ruby red hue that still confirms youth. On the nose there is a good intensity that revolves around the notes of wild fruit from the Corsican forests and a touch of truffle that will go further if we choose to save this reference in cave. Dry entrance, which links to a delicate structure without losing the silky texture. The freshness is well present, and the red bush fruit as well. A still alive tannin that encourages aging in the bottle for another three years.

A delight of wine that, although it has been aged for twelve months in demi-muids (large barrels with a capacity of 5oo to 65o liters) is absolutely not marked by wood. Reference valued at 30 euros belonging to the Sant Armettu winery mono-cépage range together with a Syrah, Biancu Gentile, Genovèse and Garnacha. As a pairing we suggest you a plate of Corsican charcuterie that includes figatellu, panzetta, prisuttu and coppa
