Abbatucci 'Cuvée Faustine' Ajaccio Rosé, Corsica, France 2020
Jean-Charles Abbatucci is as ubiquitous to the region as his wines. His heritage dates back to the French Revolution; in the capital city of Ajaccio it’s hard to go anywhere without seeing the Abbatucci name, whether on monuments, street corners or in wine bars. The wine is made mostly from the native Corsican grape Sciaccarellu (Chya-ca-ray-loo). The palate oozes blood orange with a saline laden finish.
Pairing: BBQ, Sardines, Anchovies, Shellfish
Farming: Biodynamic (Abbatucci plays traditional Corsican music over loud speakers in the vineyards because he believes it benefits the fruits development…)
