Marzemino is a Rare Ozzies variety with just a few Australian producers. Have you tried it?
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.
This variety has attracted minimal interest in Australia. I know of only a few winemakers winemakers that use it. Therefore it is included in my book Rare Ozzies.
Perhaps it has missed the boat as more attention is being paid to southern Italian red wine varieties.
In the Rare Ozzies book Brett Butcher of Soumah Wines says that Soumah is interested in the variety along with other rare red wines from Northern Italy. Their first harvest of the variety in 2021 will be used for a rosato style wine.
