Description
 
Frank Cornelissen is the owner of 19 hectares of vines rather high up on Mount Etna. Uniquely, he has been involved in wine his entire life. As the son of a wine broker in Belgium, he had the opportunity to be immersed in wine on a professional level from a very young age. Frank went on to produce his first wine in 2001 when he started with only 0.40 hectares of vines.

Frank is obsessive over details in an effort to make wines that truly express terroir with perspective. He is a meticulous vineyard worker and keeps an extremely clean and organized cellar. The evolution in his wines are intriguing as well. Earlier vintages were linear, angular, precise, and full of minerality. He has often said that in the early days his goal was to create liquid stone. His wines have softened with time now striking balance between fruit and dynamic minerality.

This is now part of the Etna appellation and no longer a Terre Siciliane IGT wine. The 2017 Etna Rosso Munjebel is classic Cornelissen. The wine opens to unexpected richness and a distinct aromatic personality with black fruit, grilled herb and camphor ash. The quality of those aromas is bright and glossy with natural rubber and candied apricot. The darkness and the fruity depth of the wine reflects the hot and dry conditions of this vintage.
