Let's focus on the north-eastern Italian vineyard. Here the international grapes have generally invaded the rows. Yet the most representative Trentino red grape remains the Marzemino. The wine that Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Lorenzo Da Ponte praised as "excellent", is today considered a minor wine. And yet, although it is widespread in many districts, it is at home that the Vallagarina, between Veneto and Trentino to the east of Lake Garda, finds authentic and wonderful expressions. It has fragrances of violets, plums, small red fruits, and expresses an incomparable crisp flavour, thanks to the very fine tannins and the typical splendid performance in youth.
