Domaine Comte Abbatucci
2013 Rouge Frais Impérial
Corsica, Italy
$30 per bottle | $324 per case 

Looking for the perfect wine that’s going to pair well with your turkey and trimmings, and make everyone at your Thanksgiving table happy? Then Domaine Comte Abbatucci's Rouge Frais Impérial is your bottle. Thankfully, it’s our featured Wine of the Week! Produced by the colorful Jean-Charles Abbatucci, Rouge Frais Impérial is made with fruit plucked from biodynamically-grown, untrained Sciaccarellu vines, a native Corsican varietal that grows on the ground and snakes up into trees. This is the perfect be-all, end-all of Thanksgiving wines. It’s immediately engrossing, starting silky-soft and saturated with juicy raspberry and delicate floral perfume. Integrated, savory herb and darker fruit flavors come alive on the palate as it builds to a gracefully intense finish. Resolutely Corsican, yet equally reminiscent of top-flight cru Beaujolais, earthy Bandol rouge, and coastal Tuscan fun-bombs, we can't say enough good things about this vintage. It will certainly be gracing our Thanksgiving tables. - Ryan Stotz, Assistant Store Manager, H&F Bottle Shop
