Munjebel Bianco - 2022


Weekend prizeOnly hereSaltyPlush&texturedFunky level 3

Frank Cornelissen's Munjebel Bianco is a profoundly fine wine made from the two local grape varieties Grecanico Dorato and Carricante, which come from 30-year-old vines. The grapes are carefully destemmed and lightly crushed, then fermented on the skins for 3 days and aged for 16 months in neutral tanks in the darkest, coldest corner of the cellar. The tannin is finely integrated and in no way hides the slightly salty finish. Aromatically, there are orange zest, quince, some honey and citrus fruits. Also a little floral and slightly playful. The Munjebel Bianco is an expressive natural wine that incomparably reflects the terroir on the northern slope of Mount Etna and Frank Cornelissen's signature.
For friends of the fine blade. Expressive and complex with a delicately salty finish. After a little time and more air, it becomes even more ethereal.
