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.
Cherry essence here, baking spices, liquorice, a musk and rose perfume. Medium bodied, fresh and lithe, with gentle brick dust tannin, a pleasing purity to the flavour profile, and a long earthy/spicy finish, and something that makes me think of Earl Grey tea. Shows the clarity and muscularity of the wonderful 2013 vintage to great effect. The finish is compelling. Tasted: Apr 18; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $125; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2020-2033+; Rated: 95+ Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
