  • Climate trend: 2015 vintage was really special and it was characterised by a very intense light and by the sun, a long lasting summer heat. Mostly the light depended by the cosmic cycle condition of the sun, repeating every 15 years and having reached the top this year. After a mild winter and a regular spring, the strong rain falls in June brought some hail to a couple of vineyards, but, thanks to the following dry season we recovered completely and we reached September with unforgettable grapes: a great year!

  • Winemaking technique: Only the best grapes of the best vintages are destined for this wine; the withering is extended to 150 days, then the grapes are gently pinched and fermented in open tonneau for about 2 months. A soft pressing is made and then the wine is placed in new tonneau where it matures for 2 years. After bottling, the wine refines in the bottle for a further year.

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.
