Frank Cornelissen 2020 Munjebel RossoTabula Rasa Shop
100% Nerello Mascalese that is simply fantastic and utterly unique! This wine's complex aromas are a treat with outstanding complexity of dried black fruit, fresh red cranberries, spice and smoke with, of course, a volcanic, mineral finish. A wine to be savored and enjoyed!
Frank grew up in wine with his father being a wine broker in Belgium so his wine knowledge thrived at a very young age. Frank specifically picked the Mount Etna region of Sicily, where he now owns 19 hectares of vines, for its unique volcanic soils. Frank originally set out to make wine with stark minerality that he describes as "liquid stone", but over the years his wines have softened and found a balance between that angular minerality and the lush fruit. Frank is an extremely dedicated winemaker with great respect for nature and we are excited to share his 2020 vintage with you!
