Dal Zotto Pucino Prosecco NV
I have previously reviewed the Brown Brother's Prosecco which was I was pretty happy with and it was a pleasure to drink, but this drop was the next step up. The flavours were a little more richly textured, and with the crown seal, it gives you a little more street cred and class when you turn up at your next party with it under your wing.
Made using the Charmat Method, that is, the whole process of making the sparkling wine takes place in a large temperature controlled tank, the end product is well above satisfactory.
This Prosecco once again comes from the King Valley in Victoria, and the Dal Zotto's were the first to introduce the variety to Australia.
A clean and clear appearance in the glass with a nose of green apple peel and some tinned pear juice. The palate is a little drier than the Brown Brothers, but more complex and textured with some more apple characteristics, pear and a touch of citrus coming to the fore. The finish is clean, dry and terribly delicious!
There is no complexity to this, it's stand and deliver type of stuff. Crazy value for the $18 I paid for it!
Go on, you know you want some!
