Producer: Corte Sant Alda

Corte Sant’Alda has emerged from Valpolicella’s backwaters to take centre stage amongst the region’s most celebrated producers. The estate’s quiet transformation is mirrored in Marinella herself who, whilst still unassuming, now speaks with the quiet confidence of one who has spent years living on nothing but the courage of her convictions. No one is more deserving of success.

The harvest is entirely by hand and Marinella is one of the few remaining producers to continue the ancient practice of air-drying all the grapes used in the Amarone and the Recioto. Leaving the bunches to dry naturally takes time and the grapes need to be scrupulously healthy if the risk of rot is to be avoided. All 35 tons of fruit used in Marinella’s passito have had the rotten berries removed. One by one. It’s no wonder only Marinella persists with this absurdly time-consuming process but the slow desiccation results in complexity rather than just concentration.

Crowned ‘Winemaker of the Year’ in 2008 by the Gambero Rosso, a fitting accolade for a woman whose vision and determination have established this estate at the forefront of Italian winemaking.
