Overview

#1 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2019. The word ‘Rustico’ dates back to an old winemaking tradition where Prosecco was made using a short second fermentation in the bottle and leaving the sediments in the wine. Although no longer the technique, the name ‘Rustico’ has remained as a reflection of quality and tradition.

Pressing, de-stemming, cooling of must and fermentation in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Second fermentation in "cuve close".

Aromas of white spring flower, Bartlett pear and citrus waft out of the glass. The racy, refreshing palate is full of energy, offering crisp yellow-apple, lemon drop and or-ange zest flavors balanced by vibrant acidity. A perlage of small, refined and continu-ous bubbles provides the silky backdrop. Terlato Wines International. Editors’ Choice.
