MUSELLA Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2017
Quite possibly one of the finest Valpolicella Ripasso Superiores we’ve ever come across. It has been crafted by fermenting the Corvina Corvinone Rondinella and (unusually) Barbera grapes with the skins from the recently fermented Amarone (a wine made from a similar grape mix that has been dried in the naturally ventilated hayloft above the old stables to up the oomph). This adds more weight and texture to this silken red redolent with cherry leather blueberry raspberry dried herbs spices and the distant waft of coffee. Super stylish and the epitome of elegance serve this alongside pink duck roast turkey grilled vegetables homemade burgers and wild mushroom pasta.
Musella create the kind of showstopping reds that our buyers stock their houses with over the festive period and for special occasions. Located just outside Verona in San Martino Buon Albergo this estate is a biodynamic paradise surrounded by rolling meadows woods olive groves fruit trees nature reserves and three hills of vineyards (Monte del Drago Perlar and Palazzina) each one of the latter adding a new dimension and more complexity to their wines. Over the last twenty years Musella has risen to prominence and now sets the benchmark for the entire region in no small part due to the direction that Maddalena Pasqua di Bisceglie has steered them in. Truly fabulous and still on the rise with every vintage.
