2010 Selvagrossa "Muschén" Marche Rosso

SKU #1111762 89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Selvagrossa's entry-level 2010 Muschen is an absolutely joyous red. It bursts from the glass with expressive dark red cherries, flowers and sweet spices. I can't think of too many other wines that deliver this much sheer pleasure for the mouth. Muschen is a 50% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2015.

K&L Notes

I've been a huge fan of the Selvagrossa winery in the Marche since I first tasted their wines five or so years ago. The 2010 Selvagrossa "Muschén" is this producer's entry-level wine and is made of 50% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It's also ridiculously delicious for the price. Redolent of pretty, restrained red and blackberry fruit, spice and a hint of sweet herb, this wine totally over-delivers, and is highly recommended by yours truly.

Classic sangiovese with rich, spicy red cherry fruit and balanced perfectly with copious amounts of savory herb, leather and clean earth.

We had enourmous success with the 2009 vintage of this wine (we had more than a few sad faces when we informed people it was sold out), and it just may be the case that the 2010 is even better. Same blend of mostly Sangiovese, with Cab Franc and Merlot making up the remainder (60%, 30% and 10% respectively to be precise), the wine is silky, full and long on the palate, with gobs of pretty cherry, spicy herb and hint of chocolate and anise. A steal at $20, the wine is an unbelievable value at $14. Highly, highly recommended. CM

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
