Wine Description:
The Abbatucci Faustine Vieilles Vignes Rouge hails from the picturesque island of Corsica, known for its unique terroir and indigenous grape varieties. Crafted from old vines by the Abbatucci family, staunch advocates of biodynamic viticulture, this red wine is a profound expression of the native Sciaccarellu grape. Grown on the granite slopes of the central part of the island, the vines benefit from the warm Mediterranean sun and cooling sea breezes, contributing to the wine's distinctive character. Minimal intervention in the cellar, including the use of natural yeasts and minimal sulphur, ensures an authentic taste of Corsica's rich winemaking heritage.

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.
