  • Regular price $36.00

REGION: Piemonte
GRAPE: 100% Nebbiolo

WINEMAKER NOTES: The harvest is done manually and with careful selection of the bunches. The fermentation temperature remains below 28-30 °C. Maturation happens the first 12 months in 50 hectoliter Slavonian oak barrels and the following 12 in smaller wooden containers (25/30 hectoliters).

TASTING NOTES: Very expressive, starting with a red garnet that is very pure. The scent is ethereal, very rich with fragrant notes of cherries, raspberries and wild strawberries along with hints of dried flowers. The palate shows the fruit along with spices like cinnamon and vanilla. The flavor is full-bodied, intense, enveloping with fine tannins and a long, sapid finish.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Excellent with meat dishes, especially roasts, game and even farm animals. Equally suitable are the red meat cuts for long braising and stewing in wine. Without neglecting even the meat filled pasta dishes and mature aged cheese.

ABOUT THE WINERY: The Musso Family connection to the historical fabric of Barbaresco dates back over 300 years. It is in fact Giacomo Filippo Musso, the original Mayor of Barbaresco in 1698 who lays claim to playing the main role in establishing the town. Fast forward to the Great Depression and the year 1929 which is when Sebastiano Musso, at the age of 23, established the small Musso family winery with a tiny 1.5ha plot of Nebbiolo in the locality of Cavanna.
Today the winery is run by three generations of the Musso family, Valter Musso, who joined the family winery in the mid-1980s and is now head of the winery. Valter’s Son, Emanuele, is in charge of marketing and Valter’s grandson, Luca Accornero, oversees vineyard management.
