Grape varieties: Nerello Mascalese
Munjebel Rosso by Frank Cornelissen is a wine of great body and great purity produced from 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes. The grapes come from old sapling vines over 60 years of age located between the districts of Chiusa Spagnolo, Monte Colla, Porcaria, Crasa, Piano Daini on the north side of Etna. In the cellar, after the manual harvest and the careful selection of the bunches, we continue with spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in fiberglass tanks, without adding sulfur or filtering the liquid. It then refines for 18 months in neutral fiberglass tanks. It shows an intense ruby red color. On the nose the bouquet is characterized by hints of ripe red fruit, medicinal herbs and wild spices. In the mouth it is elegant, of remarkable character and personality, modulated by a great finesse and a valuable mineral freshness.
Service: We taste it at a temperature of 16/18 ° in a Ballon glass. Wine to be drunk immediately but left a few years in the cellar can give great emotions.
Pairing: It goes perfectly with first courses with game ragout, grilled and roast meats, to try with a beef stew with tomato and peas.
