Faustine Red from Abbatucci, Corsica is a stunning biodynamic red wine, with class and style. Like many such biodynamic wines, (one thinks of Casot de Mailloles or Gut Oggau), Abbatucci's wines are searingly fresh in youth and have an acid backbone that makes the mouth water. This is what gives the wine longevity and of course makes it so fresh and drinkable. The flavours of the Faustine Red are unique, Corsica has its own flavour, somehow both southern French and Italian at the same time. With a few years in bottle, these wines take on a richness and suppleness that fills the mouth and makes you wan to keep drinking.
