Corsica's diversity is wide-ranging, but it's these wind-swept vineyards along the Mediterranean coast that produce wines harnessing the abundant sun with an undeniable sea-breeze and mineral tone. A style that's simply peerless when we enter this genre of dead-serious regal wines.

The white (100% Vermentino) melds green apple, white peach, and almond notes with a pulverized rocky core. The rosé (
50% Sciaccarellu, 30% Niellucciu, 20% Grenache) brings the same underlying tension of minerality, with faint strawberry and pomegranate traits, all wrapping up with a lingering salty persistence. 

Yves Canarelli took over his family's domaine in 1993, converting these 5th century B.C. parcels to organic and biodynamic. Many of the vineyards around his village of Tarabucetta had been planted to international varieties over the years. His immediate action of tearing these out and replanting with native grapes like Sciaccarellu and Niellucciu was not met with the type of admiration from locals you might expect. With conviction on his side he's now slowly become widely respected throughout Corsica. Butthe reach of Canarelli's wines quickly swept through France and now the US has taken notice.
