Frank Cornelissen is the owner of 19 hectares of vines high up on Mount Etna. He is the son of a wine broker in Belgium who was immersed in wine on a professional level from a very young age. He had the opportunity to purchase land on Etna and has been producing organic and biodynamic minimal intervention wines since 2001.
There are no industrial yeasts, sulfites, or anything else added to the wines. All of the wines are fermented in small, neutral tanks and no wood is used in the cellar in order for all the wines to express their specific territory to the full extent. Frank uses neutral epoxy tanks and anforas because he likes the round shape which allows the wines to be nourished with the fine lees moving freely during the aging process.
Concentrated red cherry with floral notes, dusty tannins, fresh acidity and minerality on the palate.
Munjebel Rosso is made from Nerello Mascalese hand harvested from 70 year old vines. The grapes are destemmed, gently pressed and fermented for 60 days on the skins in epoxy tanks. No fining, minimal filtration and no added So2.
