FRANK CORNELISSEN MUNJEBEL BIANCO 2019
PITH PURITY SALINE
LEFT OF CENTRE / NO TREATMENTS / 750ML
Destemmed and lightly crushed Grecanico Dorato and Carricante. Three days on skins and then aged in neutral tanks. The resulting wine is a lively white, pure fruited with a volcanic edge.
From the Producer: Our first white wine started out as an orange wine, fermented with the skins for an extended period. I liked the tactile feeling and density, but missed the finesse and precision of the classic French white wines from for example the Loire. With the vintage 2015 I changed our technique to search for the purity and flavors of Etna which evolved in maintaining a short period of skin contact and aging our white wines for an extended period in the coldest part of our cellar before bottling. The obtained elegance, purity and density makes this wine very suited to accompany a wide variety of dishes and cuisine, from fish to white meat.
