K&L Notes

Musella is one of my favorite Amarone producers, as their 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 recommend my customers work their way up the chain to understand the base flavors that make Amarone, and if you start with the 2016 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)

I had the good fortune of meeting Maddalena Pasqua Di Bisceglie twenty years ago while tasting her wines at the Vinitaly Fair in Verona. They were quite good then but are sensational today. She and her family practice biodynamic farming and the results speak for themselves. This is definitely one of the finer Valpolicellas made and it combines richness and elegance along with stunning complexity. A wonderful wine at the table that's versatile with a wide variety of dishes.

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.
