Nino Franco Rustico featured in Briscoe Bites

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.”

Hudson Valley Wine Goddess Impressed by Nino Franco Prosecco


Hudson Valley Wine Goddess

Hudson Valley Wine Goddess featured Nino Franco in the October 6, 2017 article The Prosecco Ambassador – Primo Franco and the Nino Franco Brand.

Writer Debbie Gioquindo said, “Rustico Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superior DOCG really opened my eyes to what a good Prosecco is. Rustico is a term connected to an old local tradition of making wine using a shorter second fermentation in the bottle and leaving the sediment in the wine. This isn’t practiced today, as the second fermentation takes place in the tank (charmat method) but the brand name stayed. There are 4,000 cases of Rustico produced. This Prosecco was soft and creamy with a nice mousse and aromas of white flowers and apple blossoms. Nicely balanced, you can taste the salinity along with hints of apple and pears. Overall enjoyment.”
