2019 Frank Cornelissen 'Munjebel Rosso'

Sicily, Italy

Frank Cornelissen’s estate on the slopes of Etna where the vines are ungrafted, there is a haven of olive and fruit trees and where yields are miniscule, has been making some of the most intriguing and delicious wines to come out of Italy in recent years. 2019 is a cracking year. A bold cherry driven Nerello Mascalese red with medium tannins, dry, hints of plum, raspberries and well balanced on the acidity front. A very very impressive drop that's also quite welcoming for those new to natural wines. Abv 12.5%

About the maker

Since a young age Frank Cornelissen was hooked on wines. He was infatuated by wines that were culturally driven, but even more so, wines that were an expression of the soil. Due to some warranted publicity by Action Bronson, Frank's Susucaru wines have now exploded in popularity around the world.

We think these few sentences from Frank summarise his practice quite appropriately. "Our farming philosophy is based on our acceptance of the fact that man will never be able to understand nature’s full complexity and interactions. We therefore choose to concentrate on observing and learning the movements of Mother Earth in her various energetic and cosmic passages and prefer to follow her indications as to what to do, instead of deciding ourselves. Consequently this has taken us to avoiding all possible interventions on the land we cultivate, including any treatments, whether chemical, organic, or biodynamic, as these are all a mere reflection of the inability of man to accept nature as she is and will be.
