MunJebel Rosso is a rich and fragrant wine of pure Nerello Mascalese from different vineyards. This is Frank’s vision of a traditional, balanced, and rich northern valley Etna wine. Vineyard sources include some of Frank’s crus (Zottorinoto-Chiusa Spagnolo, Feudo di Mezzo-Porcaria, and Piano dei Daini) as well as designated vineyards for this specific wine (Rampante, Piano Daini and Crasà). The vines are 60+ years old.
Winemaking Notes: All of Frank's red wines are produced the same way. Grapes are destemmed and lightly crushed before a 50-day skin fermentation with wild yeast in neutral epoxy tanks (2,500-7,000 liters). Wines are not fined. They are filtered before bottling with cartridges of 5 micron. S02 additions can vary from 15 to 50 mg/l (added or not) depending on the quality of grapes and stability of the wine.
