If you are not yet a Barbera fan, prepare to be wooed. Now the most planted vine in the Piemonte region (well ahead of aristocratic Nebbiolo), Barbera is a gymnastic grape that can make ultra-serious, broad-shouldered wines for the cellar, or light and juicy wines for every day drinking. It all depends on where the vineyard is located, and the winemaker’s vision. At their best, Barbera wines are deep crimson, fresh, invitingly soft, and adorned with bright cherry flavours. That’s precisely what you get in Musso’s delicious expression. Picked from some of their oldest estate vineyards, half the fruit is fermented in steel tanks, and half in large oak barrels. The blend is married, and then half of it is aged in more large casks, while the other relaxes in enormous barrels; this blend is then combined, bottled with a further six month period of restful harmonizing. This intricate winemaking adds layers of flavour, texture and aroma complexity to this ambitious, middleweight Barbera. Musso is located in the town of Barbaresco, and has been making outstanding wines since 1929. Italians would dine on pasta with meat sauce, or bollito misto, or even the irresistible dish called bagna cauda.
