Clos Canarelli is located near the remote village of Tarabucetta, outside of Figari on the southern tip of the island of Corsica. Yves Canarelli has made an impact here and on mainland France with his wines. He took over the family domain in 1993, and since then has championed the restoration of native Corsican varietals. The appellation of Corse Figari is located along a plateau, inland from the coast. Grapes have been farmed here since 5 B.C. Figari is considered the most ancient wine region in Corsica. Soils are granite and red alluvials.

The varietal for this wine is Vermentinu (Italy's Vermentino) and is grown on granite. The wine undergoes partial malolactic conversion, and is aged in a mix of very large barrels (foudres) along with some older, neutral barrels.

Clean and rich with aromas of acacia, white peach, marzipan and almonds. On the palate, a touch of lavender, fresh acidity and a pleasant slight bitterness. Pair with roasted white fish, chicken and veal dishes.
