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.

delicate and delicious sparkling wine. While it may lack the stuffing of a great Champagne
Crisp apple flavors carry through this clean, vinous Prosecco, lending it the freshness of mountain snow and edelweiss. Itandrsquo;s simple, focused along a tight stream of bubbles. A fine aperitif.
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.
