This is the real deal: powerful, concentrated Amarone with lashings of raisined dark fruit and the savoury complexity of good oak ageing. Full-bodied and richly textured but retaining great balance and finesse, this is a true classic!

In the vineyard

The best bunches of hand-picked grapes undergo a unique drying process (Appassimento). The grapes lose at least the 35% of their original weight thereby concentrating sugar, aromatic compounds and tan nins. In January grapes are gently crushed and the fermentation starts at low temperature 12-15 days of skin soaking. The juice is then fermented carefully in stainless steel.
Later the wine is matur ed in 350L oak barrels for 8 months, then 500L barrels for 10 months and finally 3300L barrels for 6 months. No shortage of expense or care is given to Musella's flagship wine.

In the winery

All Oseleta grapes are handpicked including a small amount of the ancient aromatic.

Press & Awards

  • Wine of the Week
    A lovely wine, displaying overall style and elegance, as well as a core of intriguing spice flavors that are wrapped in layers of cherry compote, dams on plum preserves, dark chocolate shavings and spicy tobacco notes. There's fine integration here, with an overall vibrancy. The long, spicy finish sh ows just a hint of tannins. Drink now through 2026 Vintage 2006: 94 points
