Ossessione

$32.00

The Mosby Ossessione is our first true Italian import. Bill traveled to Italy and worked in conjunction with grape growers there to produce this wine. The grapes are from a pampered vineyard located in the rolling hills of the Marche, Italy. Swept and cooled by breezes off the Adriatic Sea, this area is renowned for its intensely-flavored Montepulciano grapes. These are the true varietal grapes of Montepulciano, not the Montepulciano Nobile grapes, which are actually Sangiovese. The Montepulciano varietal wine most commonly sold in this country is the Montepulciano D’Abruzzo.
True to its heritage, Ossessione has brilliant ruby color and an intoxicating nose with perfume-like notes of woodsy sandalwood, brown spice and maple. Flavors, of dried red currant and spice finish with medium tannins and a hint of vanilla. The wine is ready to drink now, and would paor very well with roasted meat dishes or a selection of Italian cured meats served in the antipasti style.

We currently have  2008, 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Vintages available.

Description

Bill traveled to Italy and worked in conjunction with grape growers there to produce this wine. The grapes are from a vineyard located in the rolling hills of Marche, Italy, and totally pampered by agronomist Dr. Marco Cavalieri. Swept and cooled by breezes off the Adriatic Sea, this area is renowned for its intensely flavored Montepulciano grapes.  The intense nose on this vintage displays spice and earth with a trace of cooking chocolate. Purple violets, black licorice and clove lifesavers all come to mind. The brisk acidity and rounded tannins make it possible to cellar this wine for two or three years before popping the cork, but it’s very drinkable now, particularly when paired with a selection of Italian cured meats, Bolognese sauce over pasta or a hearty stew.
