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.
Excellent people at Musso, as are most people you meet in Barbaresco and Barolo. Quite exotic and spicy, vanilla florals, raspberry and red cherry, a little menthol and Anzac biscuit. It’s medium-bodied, has a lovely tension and brightness, with fine rusty tannin, a peppery edge, but juicy red fruits too. A long finish pulls savoury, with some black tea and tannin cleaning up. Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand. Beautiful. Tasted: Mar 19; Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $99; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2022 - 2034; Rated: 94+ Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
