Clos Canarelli 'Tarra d'Orasi' Rouge, Vin de France 2020

Yves Canarelli's dedication to restoring native Corsican grape varieties has been instrumental in the recognition of Corsican wines. As a former economics student turned enologist, Yves took over his family's vineyard in 1993 and has been a strong advocate for the cause ever since. The Corse Figari appellation has a rich history dating back to the 5th century B.C. Despite being the oldest wine-growing region in Corsica, it took pioneers like Yves to remove non-native grape varieties and ensure the recognition that Corsican wines deserved.

Tarra d'Orsi exemplifies the philosophy of Clos Canarelli, showcasing indigenous Corsican grape varieties. This wine is a prime example of Corsican wine's excellence and potential longevity. The fruit is 100% de-stemmed, 130-year-old pre-phylloxera vines,cap is punched-down once a day during fermentation, fermented and vinified in large foudres for 14 to 18 months, and not filtered. Tarra d'Orsi is produced in minuscule quantities and is a wine that will bring you incredible joy 5-10 years from now. Tarra d'Orsi rouge exhibits notes of maquis herbs, wild mint, and black fruits, persistent put integrated tannin, and acidity with incredible length. - Kimberly
