A single-variety Vermentinu with superb texture, matured in traditional amphora jars.  More info

Clos Canarelli stretches across 38 hectares with an extraordinary range of grape varieties. This white is a single-variety Vermentinu, a native Corsican grape whose vines are grown according to biodynamic and organic methods on the clay-granite soils of this domaine, enjoying their hot, windy local climate. Yields average around 25 hl/ha, thanks in part to their technique of “green-harvesting” (thinning crop on the vine to manage the ripening of remaining grape clusters). In the winery, the fruit is de-stemmed and fermented using indigenous yeasts. Wine is then bottled after a 6–8 month maturation in barrels and vats, without fining or filtration. It has an attractive pale yellow colour, revealing fruits and white flowers on the nose with citrus and vanilla emerging on the palate, enhanced by a unctuous texture and fine length in the mouth. An unmissable Corsican cuvée. Serve this wine at 12°C and pair it with a dish like pork in sauce or seafood pasta.

Figari Amphora Clos Canarelli serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Côtes de porc à la sauge, Artichauts en barigoule, Pâtes aux fruits de mer.

Information about domain Clos Canarelli

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 38 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.
