Sub Region Veneto IGT
Size 750 mL
library code: 75904
From the Critics:
- "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is the most successful of the four 2007 reds I tasted from Marion this year. Oddly, it tastes like a cross between Cabernet and Amarone, which I suppose is not all that surprising given the estate's history. Varietal plums, cassis, blackberry and grilled notes are given an extra dimension of volume and richness that screams of Veneto. The 2007 boasts fabulous depth and persistence on the palate. It is a striking wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."
"Stefano and Nicoletta Campedelli make some of the most compelling wines in Veneto. The current vintage for the estate's flagship wines is 2007, a year that yielded soft, open reds. As good as the 2007s are, I don't find the visceral thrill of the estate's best years, which includes 2001, 2004 and 2006. The Valpolicella, Teroldego and Cabernet are made partly from dried grapes. Roughly 30% of the fruit is dried for 30-40 days, which gives those wines quite a bit of personality and class. Recent bottles of the 2006 Valpolicella and Amarone have been stunning." (02/12) -
