Wine veteran Tom Maresca attended the 30th Anniversary of Primo Franco event back in January where guests tasted through a vertical of Primo Franco Prosecco led by Primo Franco. Although he found the 1989 vintage a little disappointing he writes:
“Those other six bottles were across the board textbook top-of-the-line Prosecco, delightful to drink and fresh even at over 20 years old. Indeed, I was amazed at how consistently, through the whole lineup, aromas of honey, smoke, and acacia flowers persisted, how the palate deepened and intensified ever so slightly from vintage to vintage, how it preserved always the hints of spice and dried apricot and slate, the elegance and appealing effervescence of the youngest sample.
This is first-class winemaking, and a superb demonstration of the potential of the Glera grape (it used to be called Prosecco) in the right soils under the right hands.” –TOM MARESCA
