Stefano and Nicoletta Campadelle purchased this outstanding property in the 1990’s to make their home and live amongst their vines in the Marcellise valley of Valpolicella. An obsessive dedication to quality and a respect for the land has put Marion wines at the pinnacle of quality in the region. The use of appasimento (partial drying) in all their wines makes Marion unmistakably distinct and unique - a must for fans of Valpolicella Ripasso or Amarone.

the vines are clones for Elisabet Foradori the "patron goddess" of the varietal

farming & cellar: organic, part of the grapes harvested and collected in boxes and placed in well-ventilated sheds for partial drying (which lasts 30-40 days). A further part is left on the vines until it reaches super-ripeness, and then harvested/pressed. After fermentation the 2 wines are aged separately in 350L Slavonian oak barrels for 30 months before finally being blended and bottled.
