Frank Cornelissen MunJebel 7 Rosso Etna

SKU #1080446

Okay, I'm going to go out on a limb and proclaim that these are some of the coolest wines coming out of Italy. To reiterate everything they're doing would take way too much room here, and their website is a great read anyway, but suffice to say it involves extreme biodynamic farming, buried amphore, no fining or filtering whatsoever, no sulpher dioxide, the works. These are the "natural" wines that the new generation of somms and geeks are getting all excited over. In general, I feel many of these "natural" wines are interesting to taste and discuss, but to drink them can be somewhat burdensome. They just lack snap and refreshment. I opine that just because a wine is made "naturally" like it was 2000 years ago doen't mean it's inherently good. I mean would you want to employ 2000 year old dentistry? No thanks, I'll take that 20th century invention called Novacain. Same goes for temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, SO2 where necessary, etc. Frank Cornelissen, the mad genius he is, pulls it off though. These wines are incredibly drinkable, light but incredibly dense, layered and complex at the same time. Again, I think these to be among the most exciting wines to be coming out of Italy, from one of it's most exciting areas. I can't recommend them enough. CM, LA Italian wine specialist
