2019 Frank Cornelissen, MunJebel, Bianco

2019 Frank Cornelissen, MunJebel, Bianco
2019 Frank Cornelissen, MunJebel, Bianco The first Munjebel bianco started out as an orange wine, fermented with the skins for an extended period. Fond of 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 onwards, he 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. Tasting Notes: Amazingly sweet aromatic nose with complex notes of tangerine, herb, vanilla and spice. The palate is quite savoury with lovely complexity, high acidity and tannin, yet also delicious warmth and sweetness of fruit. Amazing length. Food Recommendations: clams, shellfish, white meat.
