Editorial Reviews for Nino Franco Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Rustico
Very fruity on the nose with notes of pear, apricot and sweet limes over a light dusting of dry yeast and white flowers. A bit enthusiastic on the palate with big bubbles punctuating fairly dry, slightly stoney flavors of pear and apple with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. This finishes with a nice dry apple and light mineral flavor that shows good length. A classic Prosecco. 87pts
Thought this was an excellent bottle of Prosecco - nice citrus flavors, good acidity, clean and fresh. Maybe I like it more than some of the other reviewers here due to the fact that I got it at a very nice price here in Florence. I can easily see making this my "house" sparkling wine. Was perfect with a coconut curry risotto with shrimp last night! BTW - I can currently get this for euro 5.95 at my favorite wine shop in the mercato centrale. Even with a weak dollar it is a steal.
Did a terrific job with an order of Oysters on the half-shell
Faint citrus notes but not a whole lot going on here otherwise. I wouldn't say there was anything wrong with the wine, per se, but nothing really jumped out at me either.
I agree with the above comments, one of my more liked Proseco's! Little pricey but I have a couple on the shelf.
Nice prosecco. Enjoyed it more after the first glass. Crisp and frothy.
Pretty boring. Milky but like powdered milk. Flat flavor profile. Dry.

If someone says bubbly by the glass, I think Prosecco. Among the handful of very good ones is this spicy offering. Bartlett pear aromas precede a smooth palate accented by soda crackers, apple cider and lime. Fairly long on the finish., and above average in complexity. And remember: A bottle of this sassy stuff is less expensive than a glass of the cheapest Champagne at a bar or restaurant.
Thereandrsquo;s a direct approach here in terms of the sparklerandrsquo;s effervescence that gives the wine an incredibly clean and pristine quality. Rustico is off-dry and the slight sweetness helps move aromas of chopped fruit, banana and peach to the forefront.
Just off-dry, offering beeswax and bread dough flavors and a creamy texture before finishing crisply. Drink now.
The NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Rustico is a rather exuberant yet steely, powerful Prosecco. White peaches, crushed rocks, smoke and flowers are some of the nuances that flow from this large-scaled, important Prosecco. A rich, textured finish rounds things out nicely.
Francoandrsquo;s NV Prosecco Brut Rustico offers up classic notes of white peaches, flowers and sweet spices. This medium-bodied wine possesses excellent persistence and a clean finish. This is just about as good as Prosecco gets at the non-vintage level. This note corresponds to Lot 7310. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2009.
Ripe in the middle, dry in the end, this wine has a lovely freshness thatandrsquo;s emphasized by the cleansing effervescence, a floral scent like a rose garden after a spring rain. Contrast that with a deeper undertone of toasty lees, and youandrsquo;ve got a sparkler thatandrsquo;s balanced and easy to drink in vast quantities. Serve as an apertif or with roast scallops.
Francoandrsquo;s non-vintage Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Rustico is a textbook, frothy, fresh, pure, delicate, delicious sparkling white. While it may lack the stuffing of a great Champagne, it is the perfect crisp sparkler to wash down antipasto or to enjoy as an aperitif. The wine is best drunk during its first 12andndash;15 months of life
