“No excess… no great leaps forward… just a personal commitment to search for the best possible relationship between things.”
– Marinella Camerani
Join James for an in-depth tasting and presentation of the Valpolicella and Soave wines of the wonderful Marinella Camerani, pictured here with her daughter. Marinella’s labels, from her estate in the higher, eastern end of the Valpolicella area, are Adalia, Corte Sant’Alda and Mithas.
This Wine Tour includes the 2012 “Mithas” Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG, a snip at £198.95. We are pleased to offer this Wine Tour at a significant discount to the normal price.
Marinella Camerani, star of this month’s Wine Tour, is one of Valpolicella’s great winemakers. Her reputation comes from a commitment to quality and the land. Not to mention, sheer personality. Marinella makes three labels from different vineyards in the Val di Mezzane.
Meanwhile, the Adalia vineyard is on the windier, west side of the valley. These wines are less concentrated and simpler: so, daily drinking wines at great prices.
Mithas is the most prestigious, and hardest to find. These are some of the best of all Valpolicella. We are lucky to have a small parcel of 2012 Mithas Amarone della Valpolicella. Because we want to make Wine Tour accessible to all, the £198.95 bottle price for 2012 Mithas Amarone is significantly underwritten.
The Marinella Camerani Wine Tour is online, via Zoom. We hope to make a small number of spaces available in the shop, as well. This is subject to our covid safety review.
