Dal Zotto Pucino Prosecco NV

$20.00
Like most good Prosecco this is both simple and complex at once. It’s so refreshing and easy to drink that you don’t need to think about it, yet while you are sipping and daydreaming, it will effortlessly reveal complexities and nuance. Musk, talc, marzipan, sherbet, banana lollies and stonefruits can all be smelt and tasted here.

Otto and Elena Dal Zotto established Dal Zotto Estate with a few acres in North East Victoria’s King Valley in 1987. These days the family vineyard holdings run close to 200 acres. They were also the first winery to take the production of Prosecco seriously, planting the Glera grape in 1999.

The full story begins in 1948 with the birth of Otto Dal Zotto in Valdobbiadene, the home of Prosecco. In 1967 he came to Australia, and like many northern Italians was drawn to Victoria’s alpine region where the snow-capped peaks in the distance and sub-alpine climate felt a little like home. The land was used for tobacco farming for 20 years but things began to change in the 1980s as “The writing was on the wall for tobacco – there was already talk about banning it,”. “We were wondering what to grow, vineyards were starting to appear in the King Valley, so we decided to put grapes on it, an idea that had been in the back of my mind since leaving the Veneto where I’d grown up surrounded by vineyards.”

Eventually the Dal Zottos began to plant the Italian varieties close to their hearts – barbera, sangiovese, pinot grigio and arneis. The scene was set for the greatest of them all – prosecco. “Like most good ideas, it came about sitting around the table with the family,” says Otto. “In Australia you couldn’t get a decent prosecco, and I wanted something that reminded me of home. So, in 1999 we initiated the first serious planting of prosecco vines in Australia. “I never thought what we started could have become what it is now!”
