Terroir? I'm part of it!
Musso is a new project of Vignaioli Contrà Soarda, created with the idea of communicating something true and authentic. Our production philosophy - and not only, is based on the respect for our land and for the animals that lives on it. MUSSO, that in Veneto dialect means ‘donkey’, is a collection of wines - limited edition - dedicated to our lovely donkeys living in the estate that help us with daily work in the vineyards. Nowadays, the beautiful French word “terroir” is in everyone’s mouth. Everyone enter the market remarking the special features of geological characteristics, climatic conditions and production techniques that build up the uniqueness of a territory. We do believe in the peculiarities that make special every vineyard and product, but with MUSSO we want to offer you a more ironic and funny perspective: “Terroir? I’m part of it”. Yes, because Serafino, Oliva, Poméa and Burrito are part of our small production reality: four paws mowers, weightlifters and an essential help in the transportation of cases.
Grapes: Cuvée of Marzemino Nero, Pinot Nero & Merlot
Aging: Tonneaux and/or barriques for two year
What's coming next?
Contrà Soarda has started a collaboration together with the no-profit association Asinology, “the donkey science”, born from the passion for animals, more precisely, for donkeys. The goal of Asinology, which connects us, is the willingness to re-discover this animal that has been narrated in the history for more than 6000 years. Precious and calm fellow of the countryside society, victim of a wise prudence often confused with stubbornness, discarded with the economic development in the rural areas and the agricultural mechanization. The mission is to foster the knowledge for donkeys and promote a good relationship between them and human beings, though educational activities that allow people to discover the beauty of spending time together with the animals, surrounded by nature, while following its rhythms, often slower than the ones from our everyday life. Starting from vintage 2015, with "Terra", every MUSSO name will be dedicated to the donkeys rescued by the association Asinology, that save them from carelessness and mistreatment.
