Domaine Comte Abbatucci : Faustine Vieilles Vignes 2011

SKU:F915/11 Corsica - Vin de France - Red - 13° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 93

This parcel selection of Sciaccarellu blended with Niellucciu is a luscious red wine packed with charm. As for all the wines from this estate, the grapes are handpicked yet harvested when slightly overripe, with small yields. This Cuvée Faustina 2011 of the Domaine du Comte Abbatucci displays a deep and bright purple colour. Right away, the nose expresses lusciousness and complexity, with notes of dark berries such as wild berries of very fragrant Corsican scrub. Along evolution appear aromas of red fruits mixed with spices and pepper. It is very expressive and neat! The palate is at the same time fleshy and delicate, but of a disconcerting generosity and simplicity as it expresses itself easily. A summertime wine!
