Frank Cornelissen

- Thursday, January 19th, 2012 -

As everything moves closer to the source, Frank Cornelissen is at the forefront. One of the current kings of non-interventionist winemaking and definitely the man that matters in Mt. Etna, a still active volcano in Sicily, Italy. This is true soil to bottle non-intervention winemaking, and a true expression of the region. We are lucky enough to have 3 of his wines on the list as of next week… Over to Frank..:

2010 Frank Cornelissen Rosso del Contadino 8 - We have produced some more of the Rosso del Contadino 8 (7000 bottles & 180 magnums produced) as another hectare more in lease compared to last year and as the vintage was cool, this is always a guarantee for a “pinot-like” Rosso del Contadino. Even though this was a cool year and vintage, the Rosso del Contadino tends to be a bit more austere.

2010 Frank Cornelissen MunJebel Bianco 7 - Unfortunately, like last year, we have little of the white MunJebel® Bianco 7 (1900 bottles produced) as we had to cut down lots of mouldy clusters to keep the good ones clean to push for ripeness. We did get a bit of botrytis this vintage and thus the wine will never be perfectly clear but it gains in “thickness” and exotic fruit. A nice surprise and gift from heaven because I thought our white this year was going to be a problem.

2010 Frank Cornelissen MunJebel Rosso 7 VA - New for this year’s release is the MunJebel® Rosso 7 “VA” (1400 bottles & 32 magnums produced) which stands for Vigne Alte. In 2009 I produced one anfora separately but in the end decided to blend it into the classic MunJebel® Rosso. Understanding how to handle the “élevage” on these grapes, this will be the first version of the MunJebel Rosso VA, a blend of 4 vineyards, located between 800 and 1000m asl. It combines a nice and focused drive in flavours as well as good length.
