Rustico Prosecco Superiore DOCG - Nino Franco
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 89/100.
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.
Primo Franco was one of the first pioneers to export the Prosecco and to introduce a different sparkling wine than Champagne into the international market. These wines are quite simply the best Prosecco you can find perfect as an aperitif or try the Rive di San Floriano with your meal.

90 points Michael Franz Oct 1, 2013
This is finished with 11 grams per liter of residual sugar, which places it at the sweeter end of the brut Prosecco spectrum, but the balance will work well even for those who favor dry sparklers. A delicate floral note gets this off to a good start aromatically, and the soft, pleasantly sweet mid-palate draws focus from fresh acidity in the finish.
