Musé – Montepulciano
Musé is a local dialect expression and it derives from the words Muso, Musino, Musetto, that in the Italian language are used to describe the delicate and gentle features of a girl’s face. So to those who will drink our wine, we would like to transmit that same sensation of beauty, elegance and delicacy that a pretty lady’s face arouses, since Musé is our most wonderful creation and we would like to celebrate it beginning by her proper name. A pure Montepulciano with a deep ruby red color, reveals a complex bouquet of berries and plum with spicy, sweet and toasted notes. In the mouth it is dense and dry with smooth tannin.
