Ravenna Rosso IGT ‘Marzieno’ by Fattoria Zerbina in Emilia Romagna is a complex and intriguing red wine made from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and local Sangiovese grape. This Italian red grand cru ages 15 months in 225 litre French and American oak barrels (70% new) and then 12 months in bottle.

Marzieno is a vibrant brilliant ruby red, barely translucent in the glass. The aromas are deep and complex with dark fruit, tobacco, chocolate and cassis notes harmonised by deep fruit flavours and round tannins.

The wine can age for at least 10 years developing further levels of complexity.

Emilia – Romagna – Zerbina

 

Today the winery cultivates traditional grapes of Emilia Romagna including Sangiovese (accounts for 80% of the red grapes planted in the vineyard), Albana and a small quantity of Cabernet.

Zerbina adopted traditional approach of new vineyards planted in a classic bush-vine training system with high vine densities and at the same time using innovative approach with different clones of Sangiovese and the technique of “noble rot” for the desert wine.

The turning point for the quality of Zerbina wines arrived in 1987 when Cristina Geminiani, the granddaughter of Vincenzo and the current owner of the estate, decided to take charge of operations and focus her attention on achieving major improvement of, and an increased public recognition for, the wines made from Sangiovese and Albana grapes.
