Munjebel Rosso Frank Cornelissen 2021
Munjebel Rosso is a rich and fragrant wine made from 100% Nerello Mascalese grapes from different vineyards: Chiusa Spagnola, Rampante, Monte Colla, Feudo di Mezzo, Piano Daini and Crasà. The grapes are also selected by some CRUs to look for a harmony in this wine that can best describe a classic Etna wine from the Northern Valley.
The company is located in Solicchiata, on the north slopes of the Etna volcano. The philosophy of cultivation is based on the principle that a man is incapable of understanding Nature in its entirety, its complexity and its interactions. They prefer to follow the directions given by Mother Nature rather than deciding what to do and to not do. As a consequence, this choice has led to the avoidance of ground movement, the abandonment of any raw material treatment (chemical, traditional, biological or bio-dynamic) added to the processed product.
The cultivated area of their farm is about 12ha of which 10 vineyards with trees and the remnants of olive trees, traditional fruits, almonds and garden. The annual production is about 20,000 bottles of wine and 600 bottles of olive oil. The products are the result of our hands and only exist with their raw material, without the addition of any other "concealer". Our wines and olive oils with the utmost territorial expression and depth, bear the name Magma®. This selected wine and oil, of singular contrada and vintages, comes from exceptional terrain and geology, between 650 and 1.010 meters of altitude.
