Valle di Nero Vin Rouge Abbatucci, biodynamic, rare red wine, full bodied, full of style and character, beautifully elegant, a real treat. This wine is made from Carcajolo Nero, a rare grape variety truly native to Corsica that not so long ago risked total extinction, and has been revived by esteemed winemaker Jean-Charles Abbatucci. A stunning complex red wine, both rich and fresh, herbs and rich fruits abound. Corsican wine, particularly at the premium end can be overlooked in favour of more recognisable regions and varieties. A real shame, these wines are truly stunning, intense and textured and taste every bit as important as a top Burgundy, Claret or Chateauneuf.

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.
