Cuvée presentation

Clos Canarelli spans 38 hecatres on Corsica's south coast. This rosé from Yves Canarelli blends the native Corsican varieties of Sciacarellu, Niellucciu and Grenache. These certified organic and biodynamic vines reap rewards from their hot, windy terroir with clay-granite soil and a south and northwest facing aspect. Grapes undergo a direct pressing and are fermented with a strain of yeast selected by the domaine before maturation in stainless steel vats. The resulting wine has a pale salmon-pink colour and an elegant nose exuding floral, fruity notes with a hint of spice. It is well-balanced in the mouth offering lots of fruit on the finish. This wine would pair well with charcuterie or alongside a barbecue and salads.

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.
