Winemaker comments

The winter was extremely warm, the development of blooms started already in March, few rainfalls and hot temperature till June, when the rain started. At the end of month we had a terrible hail storm and we lost the 40% of grapes, but we had the time to clean up and work a lot in the vineyards, so the many rainfalls of July and August didn’t compromise the grapes. From end of August till the finish of the harvest in October we had a nice weather and the result is a small (in quantity), but great (in quality) Musella vintage.

Winemaking Winemaking
The healthiest, ripest bunches of picked grapes undergo a unique drying process (Appassimento) that take place, on cases in a well naturally ventilated loft. The grapes lose at least the 35% of their original weight thereby concentrating sugar, aromatic compounds and noble tannins. In January grapes are gently crushed and the fermentation starts at low temperature(13-17 C). Then, transfer to oak barrels of 700,1500 and 3500 litres of various origins and composition and age, mostly from Allier forest. The wine remains one year in bottles before release.
