Made from rare grape varieties that have almost disappeared (sciaccarellu, carcaghjolu neru, minustellu), the 2020 Red Tarra di Sognu displays a superb richness of flavor and a class that is all Italian! Mature without excess, the deep nose delivers scents of maquis, dry herbs, laurel and wild blackberry. The palate is precise, generous and racy, perfumed with flavors of fruits such as black cherries and vanilla. This velvety balance of Mediterranean flavors is simply superb. It is a very great wine, one to discover without hesitation today! With its enormous aging potential, it will pair well with a seven-hour lamb, or baked beef ribs. Rated 98+/100 by our Selection Committee.

Yves Canarelli is one of the most gifted winegrowers in Corsica, earning 3 stars in the famous French RVF Green Guide and praised as one of the figures of French viticulture. Since his first vintage in 1997, this indefectible perfectionist has never stopped improving his wines, always modifying and testing new techniques in his search for perfection. Nowadays, he cultivates more than 30 hectares in the Figari and Bonifacio areas, using biodynamic methods, bringing some 40 varieties of endemic grape varieties back to the forefront of Corsican viticulture. 

In 2010, he joined forces with sommelier Patrick Fioramonti, to carry out a new project called Tarra di Sognu. Coming from a small plot of 5 hectares located on the large limestone enclosure of Bonifacio, this wine, produced since 2016, is a novelty in the Corsican wine world. A masterpiece that could only be qualified as a Grand Cru (First Growth), with its mineral tension on the palate that is so unique for a wine from the island. Biodynamic viticulture, use of ingigenous yeasts, whole bunches, local grape varieties, aging in tuns and demi-muids…everything here converges towards excellence.
