12 pack / Unit price per bottle: $21.00
Region: King Valley, Victoria
Colour: Deep purple-crimson
Nose: Mid garnet, purple hue; the savoury bouquet is immediately reminiscent of Tuscany with briary red fruits, sour cherry in particular, sage and thyme and a little earthy complexity adding interest
Palate: The palate is medium-bodied and fleshy on entry, with the crunchy tannin and acid of the variety providing an engaging and savoury platform to conclude; will handle a huge array of flavours, from light to full blooded
James Halliday: 90
'The deep purple-crimson colour introduces a full-bodied, but rounded and soft sangiovese with as much plum in its make-up as cherry; there also seems to be some vanillan oak in the picture, the tannins compliant'
Background: Each Dal Zotto wine is the blend of three elements - family, tradition and innovation - with one overarching philosophy - your origins are just as important as your future. The Dal Zotto philosophy begins with what is closest to our hearts - family. From rural life in Italy, to settling in the King Valley, to pioneering Italian grape varieties, the journey has been a shared one. Along the way, from the good times at the table to our appetite for discovery in the vineyard and winery, it is "La Famiglia" that has brought it all together
