LA ZONA Marzemino Frizzante 2022
PRE-ORDER Available for despatch from 22 August 2022.
Hailing from Trentino in Italy’s north where it is made into medium bodied red wines with brilliant colour; Chrismont’s expression of this distinctive Italian varietal embraces it's typically vibrant
aromatics of violets, plums, red currants, and spices while adding a burst of effervescence.
The ultimate red wine to serve chilled.
COLOUR: Dark crimson red with distinctive purple hues.
AROMA: Lifted ripe plum, boysenberry and herbal aromas.
PALATE: Generous sweet plum with briary flavours. A sweet front palate with zesty berry fruit, finishing dry with fine velvety tannins.
“The grapes are crushed and soaked on skins while fermentation slowly starts. When 50% of the sugar has fermented, the must is drained and pressed into tanks to continue fermentation. When tannins and sugar come into the balance we are looking for, generally around 40g/L, the ferment is arrested to preserve the sweetness and fresh fruit flavour. Bottled young in a ‘frizzante’ style retaining as much of the natural dissolved CO2 as possible.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Enjoy with Asian dishes that balance sweet and savoury, or with desserts such warm, soft centred chocolate torta served with vanilla bean ice cream. Chrismont Restaurant, Winter menu 2022.
