Cornelissen MunJebel 8mc
8 = 2011 vintage; MC = the Monte Colla vineyard; 100% Nerello Mascalese planted in 1946.
This might just have been the most impressive Cornelissen I've tried. It is sadly also a significant step upwards in price from the regular MunJebel (this MC was about 55€).
It has the typical "natural" smells one can expect, but also a vegetal and perfumed character that makes me want to use the term Pinosity though the actual aromas themselves are wilder than any Pinot I've tried.
Full bodied, very tannic but lively and very moreish. It is so fantastically fresh and refreshing that I was astonished to read the label says it has 15% abv.
I have one more bottle and it is under Nomacorc. I keep hearing bad things about plastic in general but good about Nomacorc, so do I dare forget this in a cellar? Because this really would need age.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
No longer ITB.
