Domaine ABBATUCCI "Faustine" Vieilles Vignes red 2020
Wine Region: Corsica - France Grape: Sciaccarello, Nielluccio
Tasting notes: Characterized by a cherry colour with ruby reflections, the powerful nose immediately evokes the maquis. From the attack to the finish, this wine is characterized by its beautiful aromatic palette: aromas of black fruit of a certain complexity (wild berries from the maquis) with a discreet note of red fruit, it also leaves room for the flavours of spices and pepper.
About the winery: Located in southern Corsica, in the heart of the Taravo valley and at an altitude of around 100 meters, the estate is one of the oldest vineyards on the island. The harvest is only manual, and during the vinification, only indigenous yeasts are used. Since 2000, the estate has been cultivated in biodynamic agriculture. The Domaine's production thus preserves the original and specific flavours of the Corsican terroir, taking into account nature and soils. This vineyard is home to a unique collection of eighteen endemic grape varieties which today constitute a real treasure in the island's wine heritage.
