The 2016 Abbatucci Rouge Frais Imperial is one of those wines from Corsica that you just can’t stop going back to.
Priced in the mid thirty dollar range, the Beaujolais weight red is a perfect spring and summer wine. Made from 100 percent Sciaccarellu, this bio-dynamic wine is all berries and cherries and spice. The Corsican wine offers lots of brambly wild cherry flavors, plus light strawberry and red plum notes.
Fans of Pinot Noir and Cote’s du Rhone reds will easily find a way to enjoy this silky and elegant wine, as will those who of course enjoy just about anything from Corsica.
That’s why the 2016 Abbatucci Rouge Frais Imperial is today’s WineSiders’ Wine of The Day
