Marzemino is an Italian grape, grown primarily in the Alto Adige area, specifically in the town Isera. It originated in Northern Italy, and at some point may have played a part in the production of Chianti. Now, however, it is rarely found in the Tuscany area. Marzemino wine is very light and acidic with flavors of cherry. Some of these wines can be slightly sparkling. Don Giovanni, in the opera Don Giovanni, calls out for a glass of Marzemino just before his deliverance into hell.
