Canarelli’s new amphora-fermented collection includes this striking red, a blend of 80% Niellucciu with some Sciaccarellu and a handful of Corsican heirloom varieties. The long-lost technique of vinification in amphorae contributes to an expansive, mouth-filling palate, where copious, vivid fruit is delivered ever so smoothly. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and unsulfured, this red is a textural masterpiece, generous and full-bodied with no lack of backbone. The perfume is heady, reminiscent of wild dark fruits, sun-dried aromatic herbs, and black minerals. Canarelli delivers yet another jewel: intriguing, delicious, and packed with flavors of the Figari terroir.

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
