Nicolas Mariotti Bindi is a well-studied lawyer, but he decided to pursue a career in wine-growing on his native island of Corsica. Since 2007 he has been a vineyard manager at the Domaine Leccia in Patrimonio and also manages 5 hectares of his own vineyards, which he organically farms. The fermentation takes place without added yeast and sulfur it uses only in very small amounts, in order to transport the expression of the terroir as naturally true to the bottle.
The Cantina di Torra Nielluccio has a distinct structure, the ripe tannins have a lot of grip, the wine is elegant, almost "cool" in its fruit, there is a touch of Beaujolais in character. Because of its finesse you never would placed it in a warm southern cultivation area. Stylish and elegant!
