    About The Varietal

    Biancu Gentile

    Biancu Gentile, a white wine grape variety native to Corsica, was once believed to be extinct. However, through the efforts of devoted local producers, it has been successfully revived and is now cultivated in limited quantities. Aromas of lemon, wax, and chamomile are often noted, with ripe pear being a common flavor on the palate. These wines typically exhibit richness, straddling the line between dry and off-dry styles.
