Azienda Agricola Crasà SRC Alberello 2015

I wish I had just added these to the WineFront database as ‘SRC’ to make life easy, as that is all that appears on the label. It’s a project born under the wings of maverick, cult winemaker Frank Cornelissen, though wholly its own thing from young gun winemakers taking on the northern slopes of Etna. It’s been written before, but this is one of my favourite places to drink from on earth. Rarely bad wines, though oak can play a strong hand at times, but here, nothing added, a judicious seasoning from vessels, choice sites, a celebration of nerello mascalese. Here the fruit is sourced from two contrada, Calderara and Crasa. A producer off to a flying start; must buys for those who love the style.
