A very rich, effusive nose. On the palate: incredible finesse, perfectly balanced! Not a trace of heaviness, yet tons of freshness and purity. A splendid cuvée which has captured our hearts once again! A wine to be discovered without delay!
Yves Canarelli took over his grandfather’s vines in 1993. In 20 years, he has shifted his viticulture over to biodynamics, and reintroduced ancient grape varietals like Cargaghjolu Nero, which nearly went extinct in the 1960s. He also transformed his domain into an ultra-modern estate, to fully benefit from one of the highest rates of sunshine in France. Yves has tested everything: from his viticulture (cultivating a parcel of pre-phylloxera vines, replanting forgotten grape varieties of Figari), to his vinifications (using indigenous yeasts, creating a micro-cuvée using amphorae), maturing wines on their lees, etc.... Here, everything is the subject of constant research. Yves is considered the most talented Corsican vigneron of his generation. The quality of his wines alone has propelled the Figari AOC back to prominence. And his cuvée Carcaghjolu Neru is simply one of the most beautiful cuvées made on the entire Isle of Beauty.
A fine, complex nose, with abundant notes of white fruit and flowers, and a touch of mint. On the palate, this wine is delicate, savoury, with lovely body and a long finish. All of this makes for a wine of considerable freshness, drinkability and fruit!
A purple-hued wine, a rich bouquet, subtle yet intense, with notes of leather and minerals. On the palate: silky texture, great finesse and balance… this is sound juice indeed. A long, persistent finish. Well-mastered maturation, producing perfectly integrated aromas...
