This 100% Nerello Mascalese comes from Cornelissen's single cru in Contrada Monte Colla. Sourced from vines planted in 1946 on a steep and terraced vineyard, that Frank Cornelissen describes as their “Hermitage” of Etna. It is an elegant wine opening with beautiful aromas of black cherry, ripe black plums, strawberries, along with fresh flowers, cloves, exotic spices and smoke all taking shape beautifully in the glass. It has a fantastic elegant profile with soft, round tannins and fresh acidity that persists through the long finish. This is a brilliant wine from that is already stunning in its youth but also has the potential to offer a graceful evolution over the next 10-15 years.
