K&L Notes

Verona is a city with history, culture and excitement all wrapped into one.. The province of Veneto, in fact, is surrounded by attractions and theme parks, to meet the desires of all, couples, families and groups of friends. We say this because if you like this wine, you can stay at the property. Musella is an historic estate on the northeast outskirts of Verona, just 15 minutes drive from the centre. Hugh Johnson writes about Recioto di Musella in the 1969?s edition of " The World Atlas of Wine". The property has a long history back to 16th century. It is surrounded by green meadows and crossed by the river Fibbio. The property originally hosted the stables of an aristocratic Villa. The large hayloft above the ancient stables has been reserved for the drying of the grapes used to produce their Amarone. This process takes place thanks to a carefully calculated natural ventilation, which guarantees the health of the grapes. While the property is most known for its Amarone wines, this valpolicella is quite stunning. The grape varities here Corvina e Corvinone 70%, Rondinella 20% and Barbera 10%.

This wine is so inviting, it has such an exotic yet so delicate of an aromatic pulse, successive waves of candied cherry, plum thoroughly spiced with cinnamon and cardamom. In the mouth it has a delicate, balanced feel yet this is a Superiore version so it has spent one year in used barrique and tonneaux that softens the palate expression and makes it slightly more expansive as the wine finishes with a long and elegant peak.
Drink from 2014 to 2018

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.
