Marzemino Red wine variety

La Zona MarzeminoLa Zona Marzemino made by Chrismont in the King Valley region of Victoria

Marzemino is grown mainly in the north eastern Italian region of Trentino and to a lesser extent in neighbouring regions of Lombardia and Emiglia Romana. It is used to make still and sometimes sparkling (frizzante) red wines.  

It is related genetically to Lagrein and Teroldego, other varieties from that part of Italy

Marzemino in AustraliA

This variety has attracted minimal interest in Australia. I know of only three winemakers that use it.

Perhaps it has missed the boat as more attention is being paid to southern Italian red wine varieties.

  • Chrismont King Valley
  • Folino Estate Alpine Valleys
  • Michelini Alpine Valleys
