Frank Cornelissen Munjebel FM 2016
The 2016 'MunJebel FM' comes from the contrada Feudo di Mezzo, which was split by owner Frank Cornelissen into upper and lower sections. This is from sottana, which is the lower part, closer to the valley floor. A 100% Nerello Mascalese from 40+ year old vines, this has beautiful aromas of wild cherry, blackberry, crushed stone, cured meat and dried flowers which all develop in the glass. A elegant red, with firm tannins and a long supple finish that leaves you wanting more. Although this is already appealing, I expect this will likey show its best stuff after some short term cellaring.
