Domaine Comte Abbatucci

COMTE ABBATUCCI: A UNIQUE TERROIR

The history of the Abbatucci wine estate goes back more than a century, but it was in the 1960s that Antoine Abbatucci noticed the threats to the island’s privileged and preserved environment. President of the Chamber of Agriculture of Corsica at that time, he created a conservatory of Corsican grape varieties in order to preserve them as well as possible. He also had 18 different grape varieties planted at the Domaine Comte Abbatucci on a single plot. Jean Charles Abbatucci, his son who became a biodynamist, then helped him to encourage the cultivation of the emblematic grape varieties of the Corsican soil.

DOMAINE ABBATUCCI, IN HARMONY WITH NATURE

Domaine Comte Abbatucci cultivates mainly indigenous grape varieties such as Sciacarello, Nielluccio and Vermentino. The Abbatucci family has always had at heart to keep practices respectful of the vine and the soil, that’s why the grape harvests are manual and only indigenous yeasts are used to vinify. The soil work at Domaine Abbatucci is constantly and conscientiously followed via biodynamic methods in order to produce high quality Abbatucci wine that promises a certain imprint of the Corsican terroir.

THE WINES OF ABBATUCCI

Abbatucci produces several cuvées such as Faustine, Valle di Nero, Monte Bianco or Alte Rosso. It also shines thanks to its cuvées of collection, in homage to the illustrious ancestors of the Abbatucci family. If the greediness of the Faustine cuvée works wonders, the structure and complexity of the Monte Bianco can also seduce you. For its part, the Imperial Minister Abbatucci deploys elegant notes of cinnamon and pomegranate while the General of the Revolution promises more spice and freshness. Finally, the Diplomate d’Empire vintage from Domaine Abbatucci is fleshy and frank in the mouth.
