 Pretty herb and spice notes accent the juicy black cherry, sweet smoke and citrus flavors in this fresh, medium-bodied red, framed by light, crisp tannins. (AN, Web-2017)

K&L Notes

70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 10% Barbera. 15% of the Corvina grapes are dried for four weeks, 20% of all fresh grapes are vinified as normal. 65% of the grapes are “repassed” on the skins of Amarone to gain colour and structure.

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. But if you venture just a little deeper to the 2013 Musella Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore you’ll hit the OMG moment. This is a stunning wine, with layers of spice, complexity and then a richly textured body…wow.

- 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.
