"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 orange zest flavors balanced by vibrant acidity. A perlage of small, refined and continuous bubbles provides the silky backdrop." *Editors' Choice*

"A delicious and fresh Prosecco that is dry and clean with subtle lemon and fennel notes and some spicy pears. Medium body. Fine bubbles and a fruity finish."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Rustico is connected to the old local tradition of making wine using short second fermentation in the bottle and leaving the sediments in the wine. Although no longer the technique, the name has remained and is consdered to be a brand name. Nino Franco was founded in 1919 by Antonio Franco in Valdobbiadene. The winery is located at the foot of the Prealps, in the Venetian region and proud to be one of the oldest wineries in Valdobbiadene. Known for their Prosecco vine, the estate has been growing and evolving throughout four generations of producers. Tasting Notes: Straw-colored, bright. Very fine, persistent, pleasant, crisp, fruity and flowery. Creamy, refreshing and balanced.
