Wine maker notes
The vineyards are situated mid-slope at 400 metres (1,312 ft) in a sheltered position which is protected from the cold northerly winds and therefore, benefit from an ideal micro-climate. There are marked diurnal temperature differences, as well as distinct seasonal differences, and one of the lowest rainfalls in Piedmont. The soil comprises clay, limestone and sandy deposits and is grey/light blue in color, called Marne di SantAgata (Marl of Sant’Agata). It is made up of 30% sand, 55% clay and 15% limestone. This was the first wine produced by the winery in 2005 and is named after the village where Vigne Marina Coppi is based.

Francesco Bellocchio purchased a small vineyard in Castellania, a small village in the Colli Tortonesi region of Piedmont. This 4.5 hectare (11 acre) plot of land was truly special to Francesco. His grandfather, Fausto Coppi, was born in Castellania and was the original owner of the vineyard. Fausto died before Francesco was born, however, the family genes for determination to be the best had been passed down. Fausto Coppi was a legendary cyclist who from 1940-1953 won the Giro d’Italia five times, the Tour of France twice, and the World Championship. Grandfather Fausto and Marina, Francesco’s mother, are Francesco’s daily inspiration to do his very best. He honored them by naming the winery after Marina and his Timorasso after Fausto. Francesco studied winemaking, then coaxed his wife, Anna, to join him in founding Vigne Marina Coppi in 2003.
