The Wines

 

Our wines follow an ambitious project, not only because biodynamic, but because we believe that now is the time for the Valpolicella to further exploit its territorial potential, free from market constraints in order to better express all their innate class in purity and taste.

The elegance inherent in traditional varieties is thus considered by us the conceptual center of our wines, the true revelation of a rich and unique nuances and complexities territory, often enhanced with the right depth in the most commercial wines, thus confusing the public perception .

Cherry bark and spice blend in the typical pleasure of Valpolicella wines and find in Musella a sincere interpretation balance, which goes straight to the heart.

- Vintage climate: The year begins with a long drought, a very warm early April, leading to a fast development of the buds, followed by some rainy weeks that makes the temperature remain  below average until July.  In August, the temperatures rise again and the land dries quickly.

- Winemaking technique: The healthiest, ripest bunches of picked grapes undergo a unique drying process (Appassimento) that take place, on plateaux, in a well naturally ventilated loft.
The grapes lose at least the 35% of their original weight thereby concentrating sugar, aromatic compounds and noble tannins. In January grapes are gently crushed and the fermentation starts at low temperature(13-17 C)
Transfer to oak barrels of 700, 1500 and 2000 liters of various origins and composition and age, mostly from Allier forest.
The wine remains at least 8 month in bottles before release.
