2014 Musella Valpolicella Superiore

SKU #1270005 90 points James Suckling

 A fresh and zesty valpo with dried-watermelon and lemon character. Light body and a pretty linear backbone of acidity.  (11/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Hints of incense and star anise perfume this creamy red, which shows plumped cherry and singed orange peel notes underscored by loamy earth accents. Bright finish. (AN, Web-2016)

K&L Notes

Musella, one of my favorite Amarone producers, is now back in stock. They’d been out of the market for some time but now they are back! Musella’s wines have an elegance, a supple grace to them and don’t carry that "heavy" connotation that most would tag on Amarone—but to really understand Amarone you must understand Valpolicella first! I really like folks to work their way up the chain to understand the base flavors that make Amarone, and if you start with the 2014 Musella Valpolicella Superiore you’ll see why these are the grapes for Amarone. This so complex for a wine in this price range, it’s ridiculous, (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian wine buyer)

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.
