The 2017 Munjebel CR sees fruit sourced from the Contrada Campo Re in Castiglione di Sicilia, Etna. Like other vintners on the volcano, Frank Cornelissen is interested in studying the single-vineyard characteristics and identities of his individual incoming harvests. This wine is bright and luminous, with a pretty ruby color that cedes to aromas of wild rose, volcanic ash and aniseed.
At the time of writing it was unclear if this wine would be labelled as Etna DOC or IGP Terre Siciliane. Contrada Campo Re.
Cask sample. Just mid crimson. Raspberry with hints of iron. Concentrated, minerally raspberry palate with walnut-skin-like, softly astringent tannins. (WS)
