Dal Zotto, Barbera 2019


Out of stock


Otto Dal Zotto emigrated from Valdobbiadene in 1967, and like many of his compatriots settled down to farming in Victoria’s King Valley. In the foothills of the Victorian Alps, he originally grew tobacco before turning to vines in 1987. From the 1990s, Otto introduced traditional grapes of his homeland, and was the first to plant Prosecco grapes in Australia in 1999, Dal Zotto releasing the first tank-method sparkling Prosecco in 2004. Now Otto’s sons front the family business, with Michael making the wine, and Christian selling it. Typically deep in colour for the variety, the bouquet is savoury with anise, fennel, roasted meat and liqueur soaked dark plums; the palate is full of serious intent, again showing deep and dark black fruits, with the acidity playing a pivotal role as this low tannin variety provides fine fruit of thrust and cut rather than rugged and drying tannin to conclude.
