Nino Franco 2012 Grave di Stecca Brut
88 POINTS

“The 2012 Grave di Stecca Brut is a luminous and beautifully transparent sparkling wine packaged in a clear glass bottle. This wine just begs for a hot summer afternoon on the terrace. It is a refreshing sparkling wine in both spirit and substance. The bouquet is dry and mild in aromatic intensity with citrus and dried mineral. What it lacks in exuberance it makes for in streamlined elegance.” – Monica Larner

wine and spirits magazine

From the August 2013 issue of Wine & Spirits:

Nino Franco 2011 Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Faivé Rose Brut
88 points

More red than rosé, this has the dark flavor of pomegranate and a black, slightly rubbery edge. There’s something oddly refreshing in it, a quirky rosé to chill for the beach, to serve with grilled shellfish.
