Canarelli, Corse Figari, Amorpha, Corsica 2013 750ml
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.
