Critical Acclaim

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Aug 2000

"Nino Franco’s non-vintage sparkling Prosecco di Valdobbiadeneis unquestionably the world’s finest value in a high quality, Champagne look-alike. The non-vintage, light-bodied Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Rustico offers gorgeously elegant, fresh, lively fruit, notes of bread dough and citrus, and persistent effervescence. It is almost impossible to believe this low-priced wine is so good." (90 pts.)

WE88 Wine Enthusiast 11/15/2000

"The Prosecco grape variety, with its high acidity and aromatic intensity, makes an ideal sparkling wine. The Valdobbiadene district, in the Veneto region of northeast Italy, is the most renowned area for sparkling Prosecco, and Nino Franco is one of its star producers. Rustico has dry, clean, lemony flavors, with medium effervescence, and is quite refreshing. Franco makes other more expensive Prosecco, but the Rustico is delightful, and a good buy." (88 pts.)

WS88 Wine & Spirits August 1, 2003

"A robust contrast of soft, candied rose scents and drier, talc and pear flavors, this lightly sparkling wine has enough richness to serve with codfish balls or pan-fried skate." (88 pts.)

BTI86 Beverage Testing Institute December 1, 2000

"Very pale hue. Floral, chalky aromas. Fresh orange and citric flavors on the attack, with a light body and a fine-beaded mousse. Finishes with lingering fresh fruit flavors. Very refreshing. Drink now." (86 pts.)

Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
