Dal Zotto were the first people to grow the variety Prosecco in Australia, back in the early 1990’s in Victoria’s King Valley. Prosecco is the main grape variety used in the sparkling white wine native to north-east Italy. The variety has been grown in the province of Treviso, north of Venice, since the early 19th Century.
Sally Gudgeon from the Sunday Life magazine wrote:
“Prosecco is not a cheap alternative to French bubbles; it has its own unique dry to off dry style. When you smell it, aromas to look for are apple, pear, almond, lemon and grapefruit. In the mouth it’s light breezy, with a tangy finish. Serve it well Chilled. “
Of Dal Zotto’s Pucino Prosseco she wrote: “A fruity, off dry style that is less complex than L’Immigrante Prosecco, which is also produced by Dal Zotto. Try serving it with spicy dishes – it handles chilly well.”
