Wine Expert Note:

Abbatucci's Faustine Vieilles Vignes Rouge is captivating with a medium ruby color, offering a seductive nose where aromas of wild herbs mingle with fresh red berries and a touch of spice, characteristic of the Sciaccarellu varietal. On the palate, it reveals an elegant structure with a silky texture, a medium body that gracefully intertwines flavors of tart cherry, blackberry, and a peppery note. The old vines lend an intensity and concentration to the fruit, while the balanced acidity and refined tannins lead to a long, evocative finish that brings a sense of Corsica's rugged beauty. This is a wine that truly speaks of its origins, perfect for those seeking an authentic and terroir-driven experience.
