Comte Abbatucci

Domain: Comte Abbatucci

Perched 100m high in the Taravo Valley in southern Corsica lies Jean-Charles Abbatucci’s 20 hectares of vines. Founded in the 1920s by Jacques Abbatucci, this is one of the oldest domains on the island. An incredible 18 different native grape varieties are cultivated: besides the famous Vermentino, Sciacarello and Nielluccio, Jean-Charles has a mosaic of endemic varieties planted in his vineyards that few others can lay claim to (Aleatico, Carcajolo Nera, Minustello, Morescola, Morescono, Montanaccia…). The domain has a biodynamic approach and the vineyards are laid to grass. A flock of sheep graze amongst the vines during winter and harvests are always carried out by hand. In the chai, vinification is a “hands off’ affair and the resulting wines are prized for their finesse, elegance and freshness. A true touchstone of wines from this fascinating region.
