Domaine Comte Abbatucci Faustine Vieilles Vignes 2012

Domaine Comte Abbatucci Faustine Vieilles Vignes 2012

A Kermit Lynch import, Faustine is a biodynamically-farmed Corsian blend of 70% Sciaccarellu and 30% Niellucciu. Shimmering translucent garnet, it's lighter in hue and body than Pinot Noir with refined, perfumy aromas of decaying rose petal, white hand soap, forest floor, dried mint, and a hint of spice. In the mouth, it's taught, red-fruited and lean. The tannins are moderate and very fine, intertwining coursing acidity, flavors of cranberry, blood orange and rose hips, and a decidedly herbal flourish on the finish. 14.0% ABV Domaine Comte Abbatucci 8.9 Points...
