Named after the fine Italian dessert wine and grape, this male is a sweet addition to our breeding program here at Black Forest Alpacas. Bella Vita expected a superior cria from Cocoa Puffe and Tuscan, and they got it. He has beautiful evenly colored dark fawn fleece with fabulous brightness and gnarly, little crimpy bundles you can feel as well as see. He has a gorgeous head, compliments from both sides of his pedigree. His dam, Cocoa Puffe, is an outstanding female at Bella Vita Ranch and she has produced an other multi-champion huacaya herdsire, El Corazon`, who simply has one of the best huacaya heads we've seen. Cocoa Puffe is also the dam of Res. Color champ Chia Pet, multiple blue ribbon Chocolat and grand dam of Res. Color Champion Angelina. Just looking at Prosecco, one can see he has great show potential. His half brother, El Corazon`, sheared 11 pounds as a 3 year old in 2008. Long staple length is the added benefit from Cocoa Puffe as noted in all her crias. Tuscan's brightness and crimp definition are apparent in Prosecco's elite fleece. He is a farm and show favorite. People at the shows stop to look at him because of his "teddy bear" appearance. Definitely a show stopper!! He is so nice that Bella Vita Ranch wanted to retain 1/2 interest! Prosecco's offspring's are all inheriting his outstanding head, conformation and silky fleece characteristics!
