It was a hard and difficult Vintage, but the quality of grapes in the end is excellent.

  • Winemaking technique: The grapes chosen and collected in boxes are arranged in a special
    ventilated room to be dried according to the famous process of
    Drying. Grapes lose 35% of their original weight
    concentrating sugars, aromatic components and noble tannins.
    In February, soft pressing takes place and fermentation starts at
    low natural temperature (13th – 17th); the long maceration
    maximum extraction of the fruit.
    The wine remains for 12 months in oak tonneau French and in barrels of
    larger sizes (700, 1500 and 2000 litres); after bottling,
    remains to refine at least 8 months before being sold.

Musella’s 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.
