In 1993, the passionate and visionary Yves Canarelli took over a vineyard near Figari, which lies at the south of Corsica. A proponent of local grape varieties, he restructured and expanded this terroir until it reached 28 hectares of vines which count as one of the most beautiful references in Corsican wines.
The Clos Canarelli vineyard is certified Organic Farming since 2002 and in biodynamism since 2006. Clos Canarelli wines are vinified in modern facilities and recognised for their precision as well as their authentic expression of their terroir of origin.
Produced in the Corse Figari wine appellation, the white Clos Canarelli 2020 is made from a vineyard with south/north-west exposure, planted on clay-granite soil. This terroir enjoys a hot and windy climate, as well as significant weather variations between days and nights, perfect conditions for gradual and optimal grape ripening.
Vinification and ageing
Direct pressing in whole bunches. Fermentation is carried out using yeasts selected on the estate. Ageing on lees for 6 to 8 months in tuns, accompanied by regular stirring.
The white Clos Canarelli 2020 is a 100% Vermentino wine.
