A beautiful bottle for summertime drinking, Abbatucci's Faustine Rose is an outstanding wine that we offer every year. It is one of the top performers of the Rose category with quality on the same level as some of the top French examples like Tempier. We have just a few cases left at this friendly pricing, and it is a great complement to a nice summer day, don't miss it!
Our original favorite Corsican Domaine Comte Abbatucci makes one of the best Rosés throughout Europe, and this is one of the few that can compete with wines like Tempier’s benchmark Bandol Rose. A Corsican dream, dynamic, complex, and with enough structure where one could bury for a bit of time in the cellar as well. Made from 100% Sciaccarellu, farmed biodynamically by the island’s iconoclastic leader Jean-Charles Abbatucci, brimming with minerality and depth that is discretely built into a refreshing core. A staple of the isle, Abbatucci’s Rose is structured and mineral but no less airy and buoyant. He is one of the more interesting producers in the wine world, a historian, a propagator of near-extinct varietals, and one that runs his poly-culture farm with such passion and tenacity—a top cuvée in this color; this is the embodiment of Corsica.
