Alte Rosso (Formerly called Barbarossa) Abbatucci, biodynamic, aromatic, full bodied Corsican white wine. Alte Rosso is made from a grape called Barbarossa, a little known white variety with a pinkish skin, that has unknown origins, but is indigenous to Corsica. The grapes are biodynamic (the vineyard converted in 2000), hand picked and fermented and matured in stainless steel. The resulting wine is full and round, with tropical fruit flavours, candied peel and subtle smokiness, with great persistence. This is a surprising but excellent wine from a superb producer from a lesser known region.

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. 
 
Current winemaker, Jean-Charles Abbatucci, has moved towards biodynamic principles and also joined the association 'Renaissance des Appellations'.
 
The domaine grows a delightful range of indigenous grape varieties such as: Vermentino, Niellucio, Sciaccarello and Barbarossa. Jean-Charles Abbatucci is a proud defender of tradition and the environment - a true veteran, marvelously reflected in the wine.
