  • Vintage climate: Winter was regular with a few days of good frost, temperatures below zero are useful for the balance of the agricultural process. The sunny spring with moderate temperatures favoured a perfect development of buds and plants, arrived in summer in full health. The hot summer, but not too dry, gave us hope, because until the end of the season it was a perfect Vintage. On August 23, however, a particularly violent meteorological event, which brought strong winds and hail more or less through all the Verona area, definitely affected the quality of the grapes. In Musella the conditions after the storm remained good, the plants completed the ripening of the grapes and the final result was more than satisfactory.

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.
