2012 VdF [Ajaccio] Rouge "Ministre Imperial" Abbatucci
Abbatuci's wines are certified biodynamic. On his large estate south of Ajaccio he keeps a pristine poly-culture ecosystem in place, complete with herds of sheep foraging through his vines, groves of olive trees on ancient terraces, and large swaths of untouched forests. Named for a leading military figure under Napoleon Bonaparte’s Premier Empire, and then became a prominent consul under Napoleon III. The grapes are crushed by foot and macerate for 15 days then the wine is aged in old demi-muids.
