2012 VdF [Ajaccio] Blanc "General de la Revolution" Abbatucci

"Corsicans are proud defenders of their traditions and environment, and with Abbatucci they indulge guilt-free. His wines are certified biodynamic, and he believes in following even the most far-out biodynamic practices to the letter. 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. The Collection wines all come from a single parcel planted in the early 1960's. At the time, several villages farmed old vines of indigenous varieties that were left abandoned as the population left. To save these varieties from extinction, Abbatucci took cuttings of each threatened vineyard he came across and planted the cuttings on his estate near Ajaccio, in a single plot of granite soil. Racy and fresh, with lemon curd, honeysuckle, white peach and shortbread notes backed by lemon pulp and citrus oil hints on the finish. 25% Carcajolu Biancu, 25% Paga Debbiti, 20% Riminese, 15% Rossola Brandica, 10% Biancone, 5% Vermentinu." --importer Kermit Lynch

2013 Barolo "la Tartufaia" Giulia Negri Magnum

"'Serradenari is a cru within the La Morra cru of Barolo, and is the highest point in the Barolo zone. It is also the name of Giulia's family estate, which she was just entrusted with in 2014 at the age of 24. Upon Giulia’s arrival at the helm of the estate, the modest cellar was filled with small Burgundian barriques. After tasting all around the Langhe and learning from some of Barolo’s most distinguished growers, it quickly became clear that large casks were key to preserving Nebbiolo’s tension and mystical energy. With the goal of maximizing an honest expression of terroir, she has gradually replaced the smaller barrels with botti grandi. Her artisanal approach and espousal of traditional production methods extends to sustainable viticulture, eschewal of commercial yeasts and other additives, harvesting by hand, minimizing filtration, and long but gentle macerations in the cellar. "La Tartufaia" is a blend of 80% La Morra Serradenari and 20% Brunate crus, Aged 24 months in 25hl Slavonian oak barrels, named after the truffle fields Giulia's grandfather planted on the property before her father replaced them with vineyards." --importer Kermit Lynch
