ABBATUCCI FAUSTINE ROSE

CA$42.25
“The Abbatucci 2011 Ajaccio Rose Faustine – 70% Sciacarellu; 30% Barbarossa (another of Corsica’s ancient Italian transplants, in this instance from Emilia-Romagna) – launches an exuberant charm offensive on the nose, with pungent pink grapefruit and blood orange rinds; resinous herbs and coniferous scrub; ocean breeze; and intimations of the fresh red currant and oyster liqueur that go on to strikingly vie for attention with citrus oils and herbal essences on an exceptionally bright, concentratedly interactive palate. This finishes with a bracing, saliva-liberating bath in the ocean. . . I can’t recall ever tasting a finer rose, and it certainly counts as an outstanding value . . . ”
