Yves Canarelli is one of Corsica's most gifted winemakers, at the pinnacle of French viticulture, with 3 stars in the RVF Guide. Since his first vintage in 1997, this indefatigable perfectionist has never stopped improving and seeking the ideal approach to winemaking. Today, he cultivates over thirty hectares of biodynamic vines in the Figari and Bonifacio areas, reviving some 40 endemic grape varieties. 

In 2010, he joined forces with sommelier Patrick Fioramonti to launch a new project called Tarra di Sognu. Produced from 5 hectares located on Bonifacio's great limestone enclosure, the wine produced since 2016 confirms the birth of a first Corsican grand cru, with a mineral tension found nowhere else on the island. Biodynamic viticulture, indigenous yeasts, whole grapes, local grape varieties, ageing in tuns and demi-muids, everything converges towards excellence.
