LA ZONA Marzemino 2016

LA ZONA Marzemino 2016

Marzemino hails from the Alte Adige region of Trentino in Italy’s north and the homeland of Chrismont founder, Arnaldo Pizzini. There is only three known wine producers growing and making Marzemino in Australia, one being Chrismont, where the variety thrives in the soils and sun of the King Valley.

COLOUR: Dark red with distinctive purple hues.
AROMA: Violets and blackberry with herbs and spice.
PALATE: Generous dark berry fruit with herbal notes. Round medium-bodied palate that finishes with fine velvety tannins.

"The grapes are crushed and fermented on skins for seven days before being drained into tanks to complete primary and malolactic fermentation. The new wine is then racked into new and older French oak barriques for 12 months maturation before being blended and prepared for bottling. The wine is released after an extra six to twelve months cellaring in bottle.” Warren Proft, winemaker

Bold blue vein cheeses such as Gorgonzola, Roquefort or Saint Agur.

I have been enjoying the Chrismont La Zona Marzemino for many years. The 2016 is typical of the style; a very solid wine with a surprising and pleasing softness; there is a rewarding roundness in this beauty - no sharp corners at all. Flavour is dense, concentrated berry/plum and unmistakably European (i.e. not an Aussie), and therefore would suit better the heavier range of meat, pasta and poultry dishes.

The 2016 Marzemino will cellar for many years, and become even softer and more elegant. Do yourself a favour and keep some on hand for that special occasion. This gorgeous dark Italian also has that "wow" factor for a blind tasting.
