2012 Musella Amarone della Valpolicella

SKU #1382907 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Musella's 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva is a little dry and tight, thanks to the vintage heat and the age of the wine. However, dark fruit aromas of dried cherry and black currant do still appear with intensity. The blend of grapes used here is 50% Corvina, 35% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella and 10% Oseleta, all dehydrated for 90 days. This shorter appassimento time (instead of 120 days) is quite common in the hot 2012 vintage. This wine is large-scale and full-bodied in the mouth with lots of tar, spice and raisiny fruit. The alcohol content clocks in at 16%. Some 20,000 bottles were made. (ML) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark 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.

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (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.
