05/07/2015 – Wine Atlas, Marzemino 2013

Wine Atlas, Marzemino 2013, Trentino, Italy
As the weather heats up there’s a need for lighter red wines that taste even better when lightly chilled with just 10 minutes or so in the fridge. Here’s a nice little red that’s eminently suitable for serving cool and so perfect from summer. It comes from Trentino in the north of Italy, and is made from the local Marzemino grape. It has a soaring cherry fragrance and a sappy freshness, before delivering more of the same on the palate with a juicy, sweet cherry middle and touches of herbs and chocolate adding light and shade.
