Marzemino is a red grape variety grown mainly in the Trentino-Alto Adige region of Italy. It is known for producing sweet wines, with its most prestigious role as the key ingredient in Colli di Conegliano Refrontolo passito wines. These wines are produced by drying the grapes out for weeks or months after harvest to concentrate sugars. Marzemino is also blended with other grapes such as Sangiovese, Barbera, and Merlot in Lombardy. It has a grassy, herbal flavor profile with a sour-cherry tang and a good balance of acid and sugar. Plantings of Marzemino can also be found in other regions such as Australia's King Valley, New Zealand's Hawke's Bay, and California's Lodi.
