Verona is a city with history, culture and excitement all wrapped into one. The province of Veneto, in fact, is surrounded by attractions and theme parks, to meet the desires of all, couples, families and groups of friends. We say this because if you like this wine, you can stay at the property. Musella is an historic estate on the northeast outskirts of Verona, just 15 minutes drive from the centre. Hugh Johnson writes about Recioto di Musella in the 1969 edition of "The World Atlas of Wine". The property has a long history back to 16th century. It is surrounded by green meadows and crossed by the river Fibbio. The property originally hosted the stables of an aristocratic Villa. The large hayloft above the ancient stables has been reserved for the drying of the grapes used to produce their Amarone. This process takes place thanks to a carefully calculated natural ventilation, which guarantees the health of the grapes. While the property is most known for its Amarone wines, this Valpolicella is quite stunning. 70% Corvina e Corvinone, 20% Rondinella, and 10% Barbera.
