Faustine White Abbatucci, delicious, Biodynamic Vermentino from Corsica. The younger vintages of this wine are very fresh, very pure with tropical fruit scents, a subtle oiliness in the texture and a long acidic finish. Biodynamics does not result in funkiness with the wines of Abbatucci and the Faustine is a superb white for all to enjoy, particularly with some delicious seafood.

Situated in South Corsica in the Taravo valley, the domaine Comte Abbatucci was founded in 1950. With 18 hectares of vineyards planted on granite slopes at 100m above sea level, the domaine is a veritable museum of Corsican viticultural history and heritage. Antoine Abbatucci, father of the current winemaker Jean-Charles Abbatucci, was a passionate man and was devoted to local grape varieties, in fact, if it wasn't for him, many of them would have been lost to international varieties. Jean-Charles followed the footsteps of his father and became the winemaker of the domaine, preserving a 100 year heritage. Since 2000, he has moved towards biodynamic principles and also joined the association Renaissance des Appellations (created by Nicolas Joly, Clos de la Coulée de Serrant). The domaine grows a delightful range of indigenous grape varieties such as: Vermentino, Niellucio, Sciaccarello and Barbarossa. Descending directly from high profile commanders under Napoléon Bonaparte and faithful to the Corsican charm, Jean-Charles Abbatucci is a proud defender of the tradition and the environment. Ambitious, passionate and keenly aware of his land as a jewel of nature, he has managed to reconcile the tradition of the Corsican terroir and the modernity of the biodynamic viticulture.
