Susucaru Rosato 2020
A Wine That
took the world by storm, becoming one of the most hunted natural cuvées in the world. A blend of red and white grapes with a deep bronze hue, with its explosive flavours this isn't unlike the wine version of a Kandinsky painting. Think cranberries, rock salt and a rosemary sprig.
This bottle is a rare find that we would like to share with many of you. We are therefore limiting the purchase to ONE BOTTLE ONLY per customer please, thank you for your understanding!

Where and How?
This is a blend of Malvasia, Moscadella, Insolia and Nerello Mascalese.
The grapes were destemmed. As with the other Cornelissen wines, this is made with skin contact (ten days) for texture and for the expression of terroir. The wine was fermented naturally and aged in neutral tanks, and filtered lightly before bottling.
Belgian-born Frank was so shocked by a blind tasting of an Etna wine, which he was convinced was fine Piemonte, that he uprooted his life and moved to live on the volcano in 1999. His bottles have been championed for two decades in the natural wine scene, but Frank’s quest isn't about making a certain style. His ultimate goal is to allow his vineyards to best express themselves in a bottle of wine, and over the years his personal winemaking path has meandered to bring him to where he is today, and it will continue to meander for the rest of his life.
For him, making wine is an evolutionary experience. He is not afraid to say what he thinks; he is always brutally honest; with others, too, but with none so much as with himself. This means that any winemaking philosophy he may have at a given moment in time will happily be shoved out of the window in the name of quality. He is a man on a one-way street to facilitate purity.
