A champion of his vines and his environment, Jean-Charles Abbatucci is justly renowned by Corsicans and the rest of the world alike for his wines. The biodynamically produced Faustine Rosé brings all the concentrated aroma, flavor, and saline minerality you could ask for in a supremely bright, delicious wine.
With straw color reflections, the nose reveals itself through white flower fragrances and a hint of anise. The complex mouth is fresh, elegant, and mildly nutty with a long, mineral finish. This is classic Corsican Vermentino at its best, from one of the island’s most committed producers.
When other vignerons tore out native vines in favor of Syrah and Grenache, Jean-Charles Abbatucci believed in his native grapes. Thankfully, we can still enjoy these native beauties in all their glory in this stunning cuvée from this master of biodynamics. Bright and fresh yet ripe, it is a true crowd pleaser.
