Famously praised in Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni, the Marzemino grape can be found throughout northeast Italy. It arguably reaches its greatest expression as a dry red around the shores of Lake Garda, where it is most likely to be vinified alone as a varietal wine. At La Basia, on the western side of the lake, Marzemino displays its typical aromas of violets, plums, blackberries, and herbs with a forthright deliciousness. Both chewy and refreshing, this is the perfect pizza wine, but it performs equally well alongside wild mushrooms, smoked charcuterie, and braised meats. Eccellente Marzemino indeed! –Anthony Lynch
