Cuvée presentation

Clos Canarelli is located on Corsica's south coast. The domain excels in championing its vineyard, planted across 35 hectares in a heavenly spot. The work carried out on the land is manual and the terroir is rich in chalk. Grown organically since 2002 and biodynamically since 2006, the grape varieties that make up this cuvée are vinified in whole bunches. They are fermented using only indigenous yeasts and the wine is matured for 18 months in 34-hectolitre foudres and demi-muids. On the palate, this is a full wine with a good, tannic structure and an incredibly fruity profile. Serve it at 17°C and pair it with a Portuguese cataplana or a charcuterie platter.

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.
