Mariotti Bindi Zinzinu Blanc


Zinzinu translate to "sea urchins" in Corsican. Nicolas has been experimenting with "a different kind of ripeness" for a few years now.
It all came about with a 15+% alc cantina di Torra blanc that just wasn't working for him. Instead of releasing the wine or discarding it, he waited for the next vintage and harvested a parcel very early to "rectify" his wine. Out of this thinking came about two wines, his 2 vintages "cantina hors serie" and, the following year, "Zinzinu".

Harvested August 10th, 12% alc, it's a super fresh, muscadet like wine, a different approach to Vermentino. It's not green, not overly acidic, it's just a brighter, fresher wine than what's expected from Corsica.
