Corsican Rose Wine 'Abbatucci' Faustine Reaches the American Shores

From time to time I stumble upon Corsican wines that sound too good to miss, amongst them some tasty Rosé wines.

Unfortunately many of them do not reach the American shores.

I was happy to read that Kermit Lynch imports the Abbatucci Faustine Rosé by Domaine Comte Abbatucci. It is a blend of 70% Sciaccarellu, 30% Barbarossa, biodynamic too.

Faustine is one of the 3 lines offered by Domaine Abbatucci.


I have not tasted it. NY distributor IPO Wines describes it as "light in color, red fruits, bright and fresh with hints of apricots and peach."

Wine retails around $30.

To learn more about this producer read Portrait of a wine producer: Jean Charles Abbatucci, Corsica (Marion's Blog, June 2010).

I mentioned Domaine de Gioielli, another Corsican producer, in Is Corsica the Up and Coming Wine Region of 2010 (December 2009).
