Munjebel Bianco Frank Cornelissen, Natural Wine, Low sulphur, Skin Contact White wine. Elegant minerality backed up by zesty ginger, subtle orange peel, soft spices and touch of smoke. The short 4 day maceration helps to settle the palate and balance the larger flavours, bringing everything together in a elegant and chiseled way. This would be very interesting in a few years time.

After his first vintage in 2001, Frank Cornelissen quickly established himself as one of the top producers in the world.

Under the complete understanding that man will never know the true power of nature, he thinks of himself more as an observer than a winemaker. He believes that he is learning all the time from mother nature and that she is making him and his wines better each vintage. Using multiple plots on the northern valley of Etna, low grape yields & late harvesting help him produce his iconic territorial wines from local varieties. He has become something of icon himself within the natural wine movement and his vintages are highly sort after and sell quickly. They are truly representative of the unique wine making soils and climatic conditions to be found on Europe's highest volcano.
