2013 Corse Figari Blanc “Amphora” Clos Canarelli - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $90.00

ADD

Amphora blanc is Vermentinu fermented in clay amphorae, an ancient practice absent from Corsica since Roman times. A three-month maceration gives an extra fleshiness to the unique texture, which is polished off via a passage in neutral wood. Bottled without fining, filtration, or a drop of sulfur, this wine is not for everyone. Yet the truly adventurous taster will appreciate the funky herbal tones, mouth-filling roundness, and savory, spicy notes. Vermentinu à la Canarelli. —Anthony Lynch
