Grecanico Dorato(60%) and Carricante(40%) from 40+ years old vines from the vineyards of Calderara, Borriglione, Crasà and Picciolo which are located between 620 and 750m. The skin contact gives complexity and dense to the wine. Cornelissen's MunJebel Rosso is 100% Nerello Mascalese from several of his Cru's including Zottorinoto-Chiusa Spagnolo, Feudo di Mezzo-Porcaria, Crasà, and Piano dei Daini. The average vine age is 60 years. The wine itself has a very aromatic nose with pretty aromas of wild cherry, ripe plum, dark berries, crushed rock dust, hibiscus, followed by smoke, earth and leather. Very flavorful with lots of red fruits, this has soft elegant texture backed by firm tannins that lead into the long finish. I like this wine today, but it ideally it will benefit from a year or 2 of bottle age, and can be enjoyed over the next decade. IWR92 THe entry-level red wine is basically a field-blend of mostly Nerello Mascalese (85%) with other local varietals from all our old vine vineyards: Nerello Capuccio, Allicante Boushet, Minella nera, Uva Francesa and Minella bianco. Rosso Contadino expresses Etna as made in a traditional way of blending different varietals: fragrant, elegant, structured with personality.
