2016 Corse Figari Rosé

Clos Canarelli

2016 Corse Figari Rosé Clos Canarelli - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Figari is a small wine zone in the southern extremity of Corsica, sandwiched between the Mediterranean Sea and imposing granite mountains. The harsh conditions here—rugged terrain, baking heat, and powerful winds—do not exactly bring to mind traits like elegance and nuance in the local wines. Yet at Clos Canarelli, brilliant execution of biodynamic viticulture paired with an everevolving quest for finesse and precision in the cellar makes this rosé a class act through and through. A blend of Sciaccarellu, Niellucciu, and Grenache, the 2016 evokes tangerine and wild herbs, finishing with a tangy sea-salt minerality.—Anthony Lynch
