The wine :
Anyone who has visited the magical city of Venice has most certainly encountered the famous wine of Prosecco. The legendary estate of Nino Franco, located in the celebrated region of Valdobbiadene, has been producing Prosecco wines for more than three generations. This Prosecco Grave Di Stecca 2011 is from the ancient vineyard of ‘Grave di Stecca’, a clos on the slopes at the foot of the Pre-Alpes, just a few steps from the square of Valdobbiadene. Facing south and partly shielded by a huge garden, this vineyard enjoys a special microclimate.
Unquestionably one of the top producers of Prosecco today, the quality of Primo Franco is to be found in his wine.
Antonio Franco founded the "Cantine Franco" winery in Valdobbiadene in 1919. This winery is proud to be one of the oldest in Valdobbiadene, located in the town centre, not far away from the countryside and the vineyards.
Tasting notes :
The Prosecco Grave Di Stecca 2011 reflect the vineyard of ancient origins it is coming from. With gorgeous sents of ripe fruits, aromatic herbs, sage, intense mineral and flint notes, the Grave Di Stecca is dry but creamy in the mouth. Persistent, with a touch of toasted almond. Truly a little gem rivaling Champagne crus to enjoy!
Wine pairing :
Goes very well with ham, shellfish, fish and chips, shrimp and vegetable ”tempura”.
