  • This organically certified wine is a blend of Syrah and the Corsican variety of Niellucciu. Both are grown on clay-granite soil, enjoying a south and north-west facing position. Grapes are harvested by hand and are meticulously table-sorted before being destemmed and crushed. Fermentation occurs with a strain of yeast selected by the domaine and the wine is matured over 16 months in barrels. This Figari red abounds with elegance and harmony, offering fine integrated tannins and great length on the palate. Its fine long finish permits pairings with grilled lamb or strongly-flavoured Corsican cheese.

    Clos Canarelli is one of Corsica's most emblematic domains thanks to the exceptional quality of its red and white wines but it is also one of the most innovative. Yves Canarelli has turned this family property into one of Corsica's most dynamic domains. It consists of 25 hectares spread out over the Figari appellation, one of France’s sunniest winemaking regions. The wind and the proximity to the mountains, however, allow the vines to produce chiselled and balanced wines. Yves takes a great interest in Ampelography, the study of grapevines, and the vines been cultivated biodynamically for several years. Yves has also managed to reintroduce some forgotten native grape varieties such as Bianco Gentile, Carcaghjolu and Minustellu, but the domain's achievements don't stop there. Since 2009, Canarelli has produced a red wine from some vines in the village of Orazi that date back to before the phylloxera crisis: the Cuvée Terra d'Orazi is vinified in clay amphorae. Finally, in 2016, the domain was responsible for resurrecting the first Clos de Bonifacio, a limestone rich parcel located above Corsica’s most southern town.
