Marzemino Passito – IGT Veneto

MARZEMINO PASSITO
The Marzemina grape is often used nowadays in Veneto to produce simple wines, that are usually easy to drink, sweet, in many occasions sparkling as well.
But it can be different: in fact, its thin skin facilitates the withering on racks and this process allows to get in early December/January a sweet wine of very different thickness and intensity.
The selection of the finest grapes of our “Belvedere” vineyard is the correct premise for this aromatic red wine, perfect for desserts and after dinner, recapturing the ancient Venetian customs.
