MARZEMINO NERO IGT BELVEDERE RED WINE
100% CERTIFIED PRODUCTS
Complying the strictest Italian and EU standards
Belvedere Marzemino Nero IGT Organic Red Wine by Ca’ Lustra is a typical wine of Veneto, with bright red colour with purple hues, made from 100% black Marzemino grapes. It is obtained from vines located in the Euganean Hills territory, in the province of Padua. The name of the Marzemino Nero is a tribute that the Ca’ Lustra winery pays to the Belvedere vineyard that grows on one of the most panoramic hillocks.
Marzemino Nero IGT is a wine that appeared in Italy around the 15th century thanks to the maritime trade of the Republic of Venice. This wine became quickly popular in the regions of Trentino Alto-Adige, Veneto and Lombardy. The Marzemino grape gave birth to a wine with a rich bouquet of red fruits, plums and dried flowers, characteristics that were already highly appreciated by the population of the time. In fact, this wine is deeply connected to its territory.
The Ca’ Lustra Estate covers about 40 hectares of land, 25 of which are covered in vines. The Belvedere vineyard is located in one of the most fascinating and panoramic areas of the estate.
This land has been chosen for the growth of the aromatic Marzemino vine, given the relationship between the beauty of the place and the belief in developing a product with authentic aroma and taste. The knoll on which the vineyards grow is rich in clay-red limestone and is surrounded by a landscape of oaks and chestnut trees with green colours and violet hues from the flowers in the valley. In this context, a wine that declares all its character is born.
This wine rests in tonneaux for 24 months following an initial vinification phase in steel. The vineyards grow in limestone soil, which is warm and shallow.
The Belvedere Marzemino Nero IGT red wine by Ca’ Lustra is a wine whose aromas and freshness are very much appreciated, together with its agile and spicy side that can be noticed while tasting. These characteristics make it a perfect wine to pair with a selection of cured meats and mature cheeses. It also goes very elegantly with stewed red meats such as braised meat served by Treviso salad, or first courses with strong flavours such as lasagne or tagliatelle with wild boar ragù.
We recommend serving it at a temperature of 16° – 18°C and uncorking it a few hours before tasting.
