LA ZONA Marzemino Frizzante 2021
Hailing from Trentino where it is made into medium bodied red wines with brilliant colour, Chrismont’s expression of this distinctive Northern italian varietal embrances its vibrant aromatics of violets, plums, red currants and spices with an effervesent palate and delicious soft tannin.
A refreshingly different red wine, to be chilled and enjoyed.
COLOUR: Vibrant purple hues.
AROMA: Violets, plums, red currents and spices.
PALATE: Generous with juicy berries, cherries and plums and is rounded out with hints of savouriness. Soft tannins with a delicious berry coulis finish.
“The grapes are crushed and fermented on skins for four days before being pressed into tanks to continue fermentation. With approximately 40g/L sugar left to go, the fermentation is arrested to preserve the sweetness and fresh fruit flavour. We bottle this wine young in a ‘frizzante’ style to retain as much of the naturally dissolved CO2 as possible.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Enjoy with Asian dishes that balance sweet and savoury, or with desserts such as a fresh plum tart with vanilla and pistachio cream and vanilla bean ice cream. Chrismont Restaurant, winter menu, 2019.
