2015 Vin de France <i>Rouge</i> “Monte Bianco” Domaine Comte Abbatucci - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $92.00

ADD

If the Rouge Frais above is your Sciaccarellu nouveau meant for daily refreshment, then the Monte Bianco here is the grand cru. Everything is amped up: the same wild berry perfume is infused with a sappy density; the subtle hints of spice and dried herbs become an orchestra of rich, earthy nuances; and the bright, clean finish is now an opulent, voluptuous layer of flavor that coats the palate and just keeps on giving. There’s no doubt that Sciaccarellu can make interesting wines in Corsica, but in Abbatucci’s hands, the grape is capable of true greatness. This masterpiece is the proof. –Anthony Lynch
