Frank Cornelissen may just be the most famous name in the natural wine world. Thanks in large part to rapper-cum-Natural Wine enthusiast, Action Bronson waxing lyrical on Vice's "F*ck That's Delicious".
Sitting right on the northern valley of Sicily's most active volcano, Etna, Frank founded the vineyard in 2001. Whilst still a relatively young operation, his wines have rightly achieved global fame. The intense minerality of the volcanic terroir, give such a unique smoky dimension to the fruit.
Whilst the Susucaru maybe Frank's entry level field blend of Allicante Boushet, Nerello Capuccio and Nerello Mascalese, it's deserving of every bit of it's infamy.
This is one bottle that should be on every wine enthusiast’s bucket list, weather you're a lover of Natural or not.
