Munjebel Rosso Frank Cornelissen, Natural Wine, Low sulphur wine, 100% Nerello Mascalese picked from numerous sites.  Munjebel Rosso is a blend which creates a traditional, balanced and rich wine.  It has dense cherry, delicate black assam tea, warm smoke all wrapped in tight minerality and grippy tannins.  This wine is great with all manner of different foods.  Sicily is famed for its diversity of cuisine with influences from North Africa, Greece and Spain.  Munjubel would do it all, roasted meats with peppers and aubergines, pastas with pistachio, anchovies, black olives, even serve it chilled with grilled oily fish dishes.  Of course, with a plate of charcuterie, it would also be superb.

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.
