This bottling from the esteemed Jean-Charles Abbatucci is the standard-bearer as far as we’re concerned. Bursting with notes of honeyed-apple, white flowers, and cucumber on the nose, moving to flavors of honeydew, apricot, and chalky minerals on the palate, this wine is the epitome of a serious, year-round white. Pair with roast fish (or chicken), aged sheep’s cheeses, or charcuterie.
The humble yet seductive Vermentino. Such an underappreciated and misunderstood varietal. Though we love the best expressions from Liguria and Sardinia, the most enthralling bottlings of this tricky varietal reliably hail from Corsica. Planted to the island’s rugged, mountainous terroir, blessed with a warm yet temperate climate, it’s here where Vermentino reaches its apogee.
