Joe Campanale is joined by a real powerhouse in the wine world this week on In the Drink — Frank Cornelissen. Frank is one of the most renowned winemakers from Mount Etna. His farming philosophy is deeply rooted in the acceptance of the fact that man will never be able to understand nature’s full complexity and interactions. His “hands off” approach of letting nature take its course without imparting chemistry has led to the creation of some of the most unique, profound, and terroir-driven wines.
