Vermentino

Domaine Comte Abbatucci

Faustine Vieilles Vignes Vermentino 2016

Here’s to Corsican wine!

This particular wine comes from the Ajaccio appellation on the western coast of the beautiful and mountainous island of Corsica, France. 🇫🇷

It’s made from the native Vermentinu grape also known as Rolle in Southern France (mainland) and Vermentino in nearby Italy, where it’s widely grown. 💕

This wine is vibrant and crisp with lemon verbena, grapefruit peel, white peach, yellow apple, white blossom, and stony mineral notes. It’s dry and refreshing. On the palate it has a spicy, zing that awakens the taste buds. It’s light-bodied, dry, with high acidity. Even with a little bottle age, I’m impressed by the freshness of fruit character. It is fully present and focused.👌👌👌

This is our first experience tasting a wine from Corsica and we’re loving it paired with a meal of grilled salmon, roasted asparagus, and spiralized zucchini.

10+ years old and still plenty of life. @Steve Unwin said it best “it’s like Riesling and Chardonnay had a one night stand and Chard never returned the phone calls.” — 23 days ago
