Nino Franco Rustico Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG

Glera | Valdobbiadene, Veneto,  Italy
#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. Made from 100% Glera (traditionally called Prosecco), the light-bodied Rustico offers gorgeously elegant notes of pear, citrus and honeysuckle. The texture is creamy, soft and delicate with persistent effervescence. Pair with charcuterie, risotto, vegetables, seafood and delicate pasta dishes.
