Domaine Comte Abbatucci Rouge Frais Imperial 2015
Grapes are fully de-stemmed. A short maceration period with light punching down. Short aging period in cement and stainless steel. From Sciacarellu vines left to run wild and un-pruned for a year, Abbatucci’s first-of-its-kind 2013 Rouge Frais Imperial weighs-in at a mere 11.5% alcohol, which certainly contributes to its sense of levity and refreshment but by no means condemns Sciaccarellu grape. In the colorful, picturesque city of Ajaccio, capital of Corsica, you can't get very far without seeing the name Abbatucci. There are streets, monuments and plazas that carry the name, which is normal given that General Jean-Charles Abbatucci from Ajaccio was a hero of the French Revolution and comrade in arms of another local hero, Napoleon Bonaparte. Step into a wine bar or a restaurant there, chances are these days they'll pour you a glass of Domaine Abbatucci. The domain is run by Jean-Charles Abbatucci, a direct descendant of the General, who has now become a local hero of another kind—for providing the local populace with its most sought-after libation.
