Winemaker Yves Canarelli aims to bring the world a taste of Corsica, and this rosé does the job tremendously. By fermenting whole-cluster native Corsican Sciaccarellu and Nielluciu grapes and just a bit of Grenache, this bottle has amazing structure, minerality, and depth. One of the best rosés out there!
Yves Canarelli took over his family’s domaine in southern Corsica in 1993, on land that has been farmed since the 5th century B.C.E. Its deep-rooted history gives his wine extraordinary complexity. Robust yet nuanced, dark fruit mingling with flavors of wet stone, this wine is truly something special.
Pioneers like Yves Canarelli are much needed in Corsica, where rare grape varieties are still making a comeback. His inspiring dedication to reinvigorating the island’s winemaking traditions yields cuvées like this 100% Vermentinu: mineral and fresh with aromas of white flowers and vanilla that intoxicate the senses.
