A good and fun Corsican wine: 16` Abbatucci Minitre Imperial Cuvee Red Wine

#1 Post by Blake Brown » August 7th, 2019, 12:34 pm

As alluded to, but not named in the 05`-06` Taittinger Comtes de Champagne...... thread:

2016 DOMAINE COMTE ABBATUCCI MINISTRE IMPERIAL CUVEE COLLECTION RED WINE- a blend of Sciaccarellu, Niellucciu, Carcajolu-Neru, Montanaccia, Morescono, Morescola, and Aleaticothis which come from a single, five acre parcel on Corsica; super ripe, bright and fresh red fruit prevails here with semi-sweet and spicy red cherry the most distinct flavor in this soft, medium bodied, fun and lively wine.
This cuvée was named by the owner/ winemaker, Jean-Charles Abatucci, after Jacques-Pierre-Charles Abbatucci, a leading military figure under Napoléon Bonaparte’s Premier Empire.

Salute,
Blake
