Valpolicella San Cassiano

Valpolicella is produced by late harvest of clusters which are cut in early September and left on vines to dry for a week. We use 15% of Molinara, an ancient grape variety abandoned by many producers, that guarantees a salty taste with spicy notes. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, without addition of yeasts. The wine is bright red and smells of cherry and red fruits. It has an elegant and fine taste, with a good persistence.

Le Alène valpolicella superiore

Valpolicella Superiore Le Alène is produced by partially dried grapes. We select the best clusters of Corvina and Corvinone from Alène wineyard and we put them to dry on plateaux. After forty days, grapes are vinified and the wine is aged for about two years in barrique and tonneaux, in order to obtain a "baby Amarone", as we like to call it. This wine is very balanced, with a good tannin due to limestoned soil and it has notes of red fruit, vanilla, chocolate and spices.

Company details

We take our name from the little village San Cassiano, in the core of Mezzane Valley. It is the hamlet of brave bikers, between the ouses of people who love nature, where olive trees are caressed by an  mazing sun.It is hamlet where the ancient name of Valpolicella is blended with a young enthusiast estate.

The hamlet where wine has a special personality, made with patience, attention of nature and love.

In 1964 Albino Sella ransomed some hectars with his job of tenant farmer. From 80s the ownership has expanded and in 2000 it reaches three thousand olive trees and four hectars of vineyard with the entry of Albino's grandson Mirko Sella.

In 2004 Mirko founded Azienda Agricola San Cassiano including the oil mill, the cellar, fourteen hectars of vineyard and seven of olive trees.
