This 100% Nerello Mascalese comes from the Chiusa Spagnolo cru in the contrada Zottorinoto. The vines were planted in 1925 and are completely ungrafted. The wine itself offers beautiful aromatics of black cherry, dark currant, cranberry, orange oil, smoke, leather, mushroom and crushed rose petals. On the palate this is finely textured, displaying wonderful overall balance and sophistication, along with excellent depth of flavor. It remains precisely focused and pure through the long finish, as it leaves behind a mouthful of juicy red fruits lingering. Overall, this is an utterly captivating Nerello Mascalese from Frank Cornelissen which will continue to flourish for many years to come.
