Dal Zotto Rosato Rose

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

In keeping with their Italian traditions the Dal Zotto’s have made a Rosato style wine using Sangiovese and Barbera, which is fresh and vital with crushed raspberry and cranberry. With crisp grapefruit acid from the Barbera and attractive savoury characters from the Sangiovese, this is a nicely balanced pink wine with a lovely dry finish. It would be perfect with a heaving plate of antipasto on a lazy, warm afternoon.

Winemaker's Notes

Pale bright pink; restrained, yet highly perfumed, fresh and vibrant wild strawberry and fennel bouquet; the palate reveals layers of fresh red fruits, spice and racy acidity with a touch of savoury complexity and a crunchy dry finish; the slight amaro bitterness on the finish provides freshness and the style is perfect as an aperitif, or to be enjoyed with salumi and antipasti.

Nick Stock (2012 Vintage) says
A blend of Italian red grapes make this pale-pink, fragrant rose that offers light, musky cherry fruits and alluring perfume. The palate s smooth, and soft, bright strawberry and cherry fruit flavours are here, in a smooth, dry-ish style.

Pale pink; the bouquet is clean but not overly expressive; it is the palate that brings this blend of Italian varieties alive, with a twist of red fruits and lemon. Blue-gold Sydney International Wine Competition '11.

Pale salmon-pink; a clean but relatively inexpressive bouquet, the palate with red fruits and faintly citrussy acidity. Blue-gold Sydney International Wine Competition '10.

Bright pale pink; vibrant red berry fruit with a little savoury bramble on the side; the flavour is fresh and lively, the finish dry; good value and good fun.
