Comte Abbatucci VDF 'Valle di Nero' 2014

Heading to Corsica may not be on your travel itinerary anytime soon, though a pour of this wine is basically the island in a glass. Crafted from the rare, indigenous Carcajolu-Neru variety, the wine ferments in stainless steel, undergoing partial malolactic fermentation. Pair with seafood, salads, and salty snacks.

Corsica, France

Increasingly popular source of wild, herbaceous Franco-Italian wine mashups from unpronounceable local grapes such as Sciacarello. Great wines from Vermentino and Grenache à la nearby Sardinia.
