Figari Rouge, Clos Canarelli, Figari, Corsica 2015
Clos Canarelli, Figari
Yves Canarelli is no doubt one of the most gifted Corsican winemakers and renowned worldwide to boot! Using biodynamic methods, he’s a great ambassador of the local grape varieties. Clos Canarelli’s wines symbolise the renewal and vitality of vineyards in the area around Figari. The ‘Terra d’Orasi’ wines exude class and are some of the very best in Corsica. They are seriously amongst the best wines in the portfolio.
Yves Canarelli has championed the replanting of native Corsican grape varietals on granite and red alluvial soils. With the 2015 vintage recommended by Stephen Brook in the June 2017 Issue of Decanter Magazine, Figari Rouge Clos Canarelli 2015 is rich and complex, with intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, damsons and plum together with underlying notes of garrigue, earth and smoke. Mouth-filling with fine-grained tannins and exhibiting incredible balance, this is a very special wine which is drinking beautifully now, but will keep for at least another 5 years.
Grape: 80% Niellucciu, 15% Syrah, 5% Sciaccarellu
