FRANK CORNELISSEN Rosso 'MunJebel CS' 2013


2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #22
The 2013 is a striking display of pure Nerello Mascalese from Frank Cornelissen. This comes from over 90-year-old ungrafted vines in the Chiusa Spagnola Vineyard, which is situated lower on the slopes, below the village Solicchiata and surrounded by lava. As this begins to open in the glass lovely nuances of raspberries and blueberries along with fresh violets, crushed stones and even hints of orange zest all become very expressive. This shows wonderful depth supported by velvety, yet firm tannins leading up to the explosive finish where layers of bright fruits continue to build. Overall an absolutely gorgeous and today it seems to be the most approachable of these Single Vineyard wines from Frank Cornelissen . (Best 2017-2034)- April, 2015 (MD)
