Climate trend: A fairly regular year both in terms of rainfall and seasonal temperatures,
even if summer confirms the drought and heat trend of the
last four years. The very rainy May did not compromise the development
of the plants and the fruits, which after a scarce vintage,
were abundant and the earth managed itself with even a few rains
until the beginning of September, when an abundant precipitation
accelerated the ripening and our harvest times. For the first time
we have increased the harvesting team to ensure the grapes were
picked at a perfect ripening point. The production balance and our
respectful care have allowed us to consider 2018 as an excellent
Winemaking technique: Soft pressing, settling at 12°C by fresh spring water out of the tank.
Natural fermentation. We take the biggest reseed and we move the
wine into two cement eggs and there left, never touched, for one
year. The movement is the egg is enough to keep the wine alive,
clean and clear.
The wine is not filtred.
Alcohol: 13% vol
Total acidity: 5.40

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.
