Italy – Marion
The Marion agricultural firm, situated in the uncontaminated valley of Marcellise to the East of Verona, is a small, family-run business managed by Stefano Campedelli, together with his wife Nicoletta and brother Marco. The firm’s philosophy is centred on constant care and attention during all phases of wine production, starting first and foremost from the running of the vineyards, organised along strict lines to achieve maximum protection for the natural balance of the plants. The vines are situated in a foothill area with plenty of sunshine and have partly been reconverted to guyot, a plant training system which enables a higher quality grape yield to be achieved.
Ability, perseverance and hard work are the factors which have enabled this firm to produce wines such as Valpolicella Superiore, Amarone, Cabernet Sauvignon and Teroldego, fine-bodied wines with personality, able at the first sip to express that “terroir” which few producers are able to exalt to the full.
