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. Primo Franco, grandson of the original founder, Nino, professionally and lovingly moved this estate into the twenty first century, setting the example to other producers.
Unquestionably one of the top producers of Prosecco today, the quality of the man is to be found in his wine. American wine critic Robert Parker scored Rustico 90/100.
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 NV Prosecco Superiore Rustico is a rather exuberant yet steely and powerful Prosecco. White peaches, crushed rocks, smoke and flowers are some of the nuances that flow from this large-scaled, important Prosecco. A rich, textured finish rounds things out nicely. The Rustico is far from an easy-going cocktail wine, and is sure to be better at the table than on its own.
