The splendid 17th century villa of Tenuta Musella is set within the beautiful green hills of San Martino Buon Albergo close to Verona in one of the most picturesque vineyard regions in the Veneto.
The vineyards cover 3 different hillside locations on south and west facing slopes: the Monte del Drago, Perlar and Palazzina hills. The vineyards are planted with a glorious mixture of indigenous and international varieties including Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Croatina, Garganega, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The estate produces an excellent white and rosé, as well as a range of classic reds including the magnificent Valpolicella Ripasso and Amarone.
The Pasqua family are stalwarts of the region and produce wines with a focus on expressing pure, natural fruit combined with the complexity from great terroir. The charming Maddalena Pasqua di Bisceglie is an ardent protector and promoter of her vineyards and her infectious enthusiasm has led them to become biodynamically certified.
The wines are elegant and full of character, providing a considerable step up from most Valpolicella, yet still delivering incredible value for the quality.
