The soil of the Comte Peraldi vineyard consists of a granitic ground. The 50 hectares of the vineyardI are grown in reasoned farming. Red wines stay a long time in wooden barrel to become supple, to melt their tannins and to acquire harmony and balance and an other 2 winters in the cellar...
The name of Domaine Peraldi was given in memory of Count Peraldi, a faithful defender of the Corsican heritage. Peraldi wine is made from indigenous Corsican grape varieties such as Sciaccarello, Vermentino and Nielluccio, which grow next to Cinsault and Carignan. Thus, the Peraldi red wines go through a long rearing, allowing them to soften, to melt their tannins and to acquire harmony and balance.
