I have admired this Veneto estate for years.
“The hottest winery in Veneto? Well, there are several. But one of them is without question Marion. ...I can’t imagine anyone who doesn’t love wine who wouldn’t want to drink any of their wines.”
"I was quite simply blown away by the wines I tasted at Marion. The vineyards are tended with maniacal passion, and that attention to detail comes through in spades in these wines."
And the wine?
"Masses of black cherry, woodland herbs, crushed rocks, mocha and hints of ground ginger create an enthralling bouquet as the 2017 Amarone della Valpolicella opens in the glass. There are depths of dark textural fruits and spices, yet what is most impressive are the vibrant acids and saline-mineral tones that create seductive contrast, as this comes across as amazingly juicy and fresh. There’s not a hard edge in sight, as it tapers off long and lightly structured, yet impossibly finessed. Wow. The 2017 is an Amarone that dreams of being a Pinot Noir."
