2019 Frank Cornelissen Munjabel Rosso CR VOLCANO WINE from Mt. Etna, Sicily 

Grape: Nerello Mascalese

Volcano wine! Frank Cornelissen has been making wine since 2001 is one of the true heroes of natural wine, and he has the cult status to prove it. He works in the north valley of the active volcano, Mt. Etna, on the north east corner of Sicily. He likes it here because of the diversity of volcanic soils- which combined with his understanding of both terroir and hands off winemaking- make for explosive and COMPLEX wines. Munjabel Rosso CR is a site specific example of this - this wine shows the power and tannic side of it’s grape- Nerello Mascalese. You can enjoy this one with a slight chill and spend some time with it- the wine will open and change!
