Valdobbiadene DOCG, Valdobbiandene, Italy
|Intensity||Light bodied||Full bodied|
The name 'Marsuret' is the family nickname of the Agostino Marsura, who bought these vineyards in the Valdobbiadene hiils in 1936. His mission was to produce quality wines which reflect the land from which they come. All projects and actions originate from a deep respect for nature and tradition.
Attention is paid to all production stages so as to preserve the personality and features which are typical of each wine. The younger generation, Giovanni, Valter and Ermes now run the estate and carry on this tradition, having grown up among the vines and the hills.
