2012 Musella Amarone della Valpolicella

SKU #1382907 92 points Wine & Spirits

 Winemaker Enrico Raber changed his usual blend in 2012, dropping the amount of tannic oseleta in favor of corvinone, and aged the wine in large oak casks and cement tanks.The result is fresh and vivacious, with red-cherry flavors and enticing floral scents.  (2/2019)

 Just mid ruby with orange tinges. Minty ripasso nose with notes of dried cherry, fruit cake and oak. Genuinely supple and just medium-bodied palate weight – its 15.5% alcohol is imperceptible. Really individual and ready now. The sensation of sweetness on the finish is because of the alcohol, not residual sugar. 17/20 points (WS)  (3/2018)

We've had the good pleasure of offering the wines of this wonderful estate for the past few years and are especially taken with their latest Amarone. The Di Bisceglie family is not only committed to biodynamic farming but also to crafting wines that best express the elegance of Valpolicella. This inchanting red opens with a fragrant bouquet of spiced cherries and is long on the palate with a hint of licorice on the finish. So much flavor and personality. Ideal with roasts, stews, aged cheeses or simply on its own.

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.
