The Musso winery was founded in 1929 and coincides with one of the most critical moments of the Italian economy and the world, the year of the “Great Depression” Sebastiano Musso, born in 1906, did not lose heart. Even with being left alone at a young age from the untimely death of his father, he found the strength to fight back and establish a small winery in Barbaresco. Valter Musso, a young winemaker, joined the family winery in the mid-eighties, today is a mature man and head of the winery, overseeing the responsibilities in the vineyard and the winery to produce quality wine. Today Musso make wonderful Barbaresco from Rio Sordo and Pora crus and many other beautifully crafted wines.
Musso have a fairly big patch of Pora, surrounded by vineyards used by the Produttori del Barbaresco. Dried flowers, cherry, ripe strawberry, spicy biscuits, aniseed and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, plush and well-rounded, ample red fruit, a smattering of dried herb, smooth suede tannin, a restrained succulence, and long ripe finish. It’s a very good showing here, with more to come: its puppy fat will stand it in good stead.
