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

Regular season until the end of July, after some very hot days the weather changed and we had a lot of rain in the first two weeks of August and almost everyday we had some rain until September 15th. The harvest was a little complicated, but we had reduced the grapes during the summer to avoid infections, so the result is better than expected.

- WINEMAKING TECHNICS:

This wine borns from the idea of producing the Amarone in as most natural and traditional way as possible, starting first from an obsessive grapes selection.

The second selection is done at the moment of pressing, after 100 days from the harvest, when four or five people descart the singol grape if not perfctly healthy. The soft pressing done by feet, leave the dry stems in to have some tannins more and the fermentation is with indigenus yeasts at not controled temperature in a oak conical fermenting vat. We do daily “follature” by hand untill the natural slow down of the natural fermentation in few months. This wine rests at least 3 years in a not toasted barrel of 700 l. (I bought an artigianl barrel done with oak bended by steam to avoid the interference of toasting)

It is not filtred, not clarifieted, we only wash the barrel twice in 3 years.

Bottled in January 2009.
