Product Description:

In the rugged granite hills above Ajaccio, Jean-Charles Abbatucci continues to demonstrate a mastery of biodynamic viticulture that leads to a lineup of some the most fascinating—and downright delicious—wines of Corsica, and perhaps all of France. His steadfast confidence in Corsica’s local grape varieties, coupled with his respect for ancient farming and cellar practices learned from his father, allows him to craft wines with singular aromatics and unrivaled Corsican soul. His flagship cuvée is this Faustine rouge bottling, a blend of Sciaccarellu with some Niellucciu that could be considered the perfumed vinous essence of the island’s scrubby, rocky slopes. Vividly bright in color and aroma, it conveys smashed wild raspberries laced with maquis herbs such as the myrtle and immortelle plants that surround the vineyards. The palate is deeply exotic with a luscious dollop of Mediterranean sun and just the right touch of elegant tannins, making it thirst-quenching and versatile with anything from rustic charcuterie to a number of worldly cuisines. It deserves a place on any table. –Anthony Lynch
