“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.”

“Here is a Prosecco Superiore that shows depth and elegance as well the denomination’s hallmark freshness. It opens with delicate enticing scents of spring wildflower, fleshy white stone fruit, wild herb and a yeasty whiff of bread dough. On the dry linear palate, a silky mousse accompanies yellow apple, pear and white peach alongside a note of white almond and a hint of ginger.”

“An outstanding expression of one of the most celebrated vineyard sites in the denomination, this wine opens with enticing scents of toasted almond, white orchard fruit, botanical herb and pressed spring flower. Elegant and focused, the bright, foaming palate delivers a great depth of flavors, including green apple, creamy white peach and lemon drop, while a soft mousse gives it a silky texture. It closes crisp, tangy and dry.”

Briscoe Bites featured Nino Franco Rustico in the December 11, 2017 article Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco.

“On the pour and into the glass, the Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco is a light, but bright straw-like yellow. Out of the glass comes complex aromas of brioche, crisp apples, and white petaled flowers. The palate is a light to medium body with a bit of nuttiness in the background that gives the impression of a bit of creaminess on the tongue as well.”
