Domaine ABBATUCCI "Ministre" red 2015

Wine Region: Corsica - France

Grape
: Sciaccarello, Nielluccio, Morescola, Morescono, Montanaccia, Carcajolo Nero, Aleatico

Tasting notes: Black cherry colour and ruby reflections, the powerful nose evokes a touch of tangy red fruits (redcurrant and blackcurrant). This wine is finely woody, slightly smoky and we find the characteristic mineral note of the Domaine. The tannins are very elegant and the long persistence is very complex.

About the winery:
Located in southern Corsica, in the heart of the Taravo valley and at an altitude of around 100 meters, the estate is one of the oldest vineyards on the island.
The harvest is only manual, and during the vinification, only indigenous yeasts are used. Since 2000, the estate has been cultivated in biodynamic agriculture. The Domaine's production thus preserves the original and specific flavours of the Corsican terroir, taking into account nature and soils.
This vineyard is home to a unique collection of eighteen endemic grape varieties which today constitute a real treasure in the island's wine heritage.
