The Pinot Grigio has aromatics of fennel, apple blossom and pear. The palate is all about freshness, as the wine is full of crunchy and refreshing fresh fruit. The Sangiovese succulent and juicy with the right combination of generous red cherry flavour and a flash of spicy oak with the crunchy tannin leading to a savoury finish. The ultimate Italian duo.
The Italian Job
Grape Variety – Pinot Grigio/Sangiovese;
Region – King Valley Victoria;
Winery – Dal Zotto;
Profile – Pinot Grigio provides a light crisp and refreshing white with the Sangiovese being the perfect red accompaniment being mid bodied with slightly savoury finish.
Dal Zotto is regarded as one of the stand-out wineries in the King Valley region, and the importance of family is at its heart. The business is now lead by the second generation of Dal Zotto’s – Michael and Christian. But it was patriarch Otto Dal Zotto with his wife Elena that inspired the vision of the business. Their approach combines the best of traditional Italian methods alongsidevmore modern, ‘new-world’ winemaking techniques. With the expansion of the winery in 1994 came the opportunity for Otto to introduce Italian varietals into the vineyard – barbera, sangiovese, pinot grigio, arneis and, importantly, prosecco – a varietal and wine style that is the foundation of Otto’s Italian hometown, and now the signature wine of the Dal Zotto range.
