I still clearly recollect the first time.
From this gentle hill, across the whole horizon, an immense sky lay over the slopes that descend towards the Parma valley.
Just a few steps away, a small stream called the Ariola, still flows.
Every now and then a light breeze blew, caressing the silence of the hills that to this day, at sunset, glow with a warm and comforting light. This was the place for the story of Cantine Ariola to begin.
On these hills I pursued my dream: to create a wine that represented my life, my aptitudes, my character. A wine that proudly hails from Parma: with a character that is strong, yet soft and refined
It is from these hills, at an altitude between 200 and 300 metres, that we have reached the top of the world with a wine named after me: Marcello.
Today, Cantine Ariola cover an area of approximately 70 hectares. Processing still follows the seasons, as do resting and ageing.
We respect our land and nature because it pays us back with the fruits of our work. We use irrigation control systems to provide the vines with the right amount of water.
Our vineyards produce traditional white and red wines of Parma and the Emilia region: Lambrusco, Malvasia and Sparkling Bollicine, but also still and classical red wines, in addition to distillates, craft beer and elixirs.
