Selvagrossa "Muschén" Marche Rosso '17

Just when you think we may be finished spreading the good word on Selvagrossa, a new vintage release occurs, and the excitement is once again reignited! For this month's $15 & Under, we are featuring Selvagrossa's 2017 bottling of "Muschén." Selvagrossa offers some of the best everyday drinking wines that you'll find here at the shop.

To catch those up on exactly who we are talking about if you are not already familiar, Alberto and his brother Alessandro, run a small family operation located on the outskirts of the village of Pesaro. Alberto has worked throughout Italy and even in New York as a sommelier. He returned home to the family business, and the wines have continued to get better year in and year out. In fact, we strongly feel that the wines being produced at Selvagrossa today are amongst the very best of the region.

Throughout the years at Selvagrossa, more Sangiovese was planted as well as Merlot and Cabernet Franc in order to exploit the advantages of the Adriatic terroir of the area, one marked by cool summer nights with soils rich in clay. The results of these conditions yield wines with great acidity which is especially important for Cabernet Franc.

"Muschén" is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Merlot from the estate vineyards. It is the type of simple, yet delicious red wine that you will want to have as your house red. Pizza or pasta night, Muschén. Grilled burgers or steaks, Muschén. You get the point. Buy this by the case.

Selvagrossa

Located in the foothills of Pesaro, facing the Marche's Adriatic coast, this is a very small estate with only five hectares of vines. Sangiovese, along with a select few international varieties find a terroir favorable for the production of great wines with character.
