Italy is to some degree shrouded in mystery, with many relatively unknown indigenous grape varieties producing wines which often remain under the radar. There are of course many recognizable and great wines, such as Barolo, Amarone, Chianti and Brunello. We are pleased to bring you a diverse and growing range and an increasing number direct from the domaines.
The Musso Winery, established in 1929, is located in Barbaresco, Piemonte, in North West Italy where Nebbiolo grapes are cultivated in the estate vineyards.
Barbaresco “Pora” is a very expressive wine; very rich in aromas of cherries, raspberries and strawberries along with hints of dried flowers, cinnamon and vanilla. The flavour is consistent: full bodied, intense, with fine mature tannins.
The Musso Winery, established in 1929, is located in Barbaresco, Piemonte, in North West Italy. Barbera d’Alba is obtained from the oldest vineyard of Musso, located in Rio Sordo. The wine has notes of red fruit jam and brandied cherries along with cinnamon and vanilla. The palate is rich and intense, with a good balance between alcohol and acidity and a structure that offers good aging potential.
Located in Barbaresco, Azienda Agricola Musso was founded in 1929 when Italy was gripped by the 'great depression' which had a huge impact on many large businesses. It was 23 year old Sebastiano Musso who had the bravery and entrepreneurial spirit to go ahead and open the winery after losing his father. This is a fruity, floral wine with dark fruits and an incredibly smooth palate. Match this with a hearty Italian pasta dish.
Dolcetto d’Alba is aged in the bottle for 2 months before it is released for sale, the grapes are harvested by hand in order to treat them with the highest level of respect. This is young and fragrant red with notes of violets and cherry red fruits on the nose, the palate offers a great deal with strawberry and a touch of bitterness on the finish. This will match perfectly with a range of cold cuts and cheeses.
