2010 Musella Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva

SKU #1289316 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Crushed iris, baked plum, cedar, tobacco and new leather aromas seamlessly come together on this bold full-bodied red. Smooth and ripe, the full-bodied palate doles out mature black cherry, raspberry jam, licorice and mocha framed in well-knit, velvety tannins. *Cellar Selection* (KO)  (12/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

 This bright, medium-bodied red shows well-knit tannins and appealing flavors of juicy, sun-dried cherry, lavender, dried fig and spice. An accessible version, with a lightly chewy, citrusy finish. (AN)  (2/2017)

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. These wines are so good, you won’t need my help to understand why I wish they could all taste this good! (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian Wine Buyer)

- 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.
