LA ZONA Marzemino Frizzante 2019
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: Dark crimson red with distinctive purple hues.
AROMA: Plum, violets and red berry fruit with a hint of spicy oak.
PALATE: Generous plum fruit and berry fruit. Sweet up front, but not too cloying. Finishes dry with fine velvety tannins.
“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. Bottled young in a frizzante style retaining as much of the natural dissolved CO2 as possible.” Warren Proft, winemaker
