2012 Carcajolu Neru Rouge

Domaine Comte Abbatucci

2012 Carcajolu Neru Rouge Domaine Comte Abbatucci - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Rare at Abbatucci, this wine is produced from a single grape variety taken from the nursery Jean-Charles’s father planted in the 1960s to save indigenous Corsican varieties from extinction. The grape’s potential was proven in small tests, and the decision was made to graft several acres of existing older rootstock over to the great Carcajolu. Barring anything yet to be discovered, today it reigns, along with the great Nielluccius of Patrimonio in the north, as Corsica’s noblest red wine grapes. –Dixon Brooke
