Anyone who has visited the magical city of Venice has most certainly encountered the famous wine of Prosecco.The legendary estate of Nino Franco, located in the celebrated region of Valdobbiadene, has been producing Prosecco wines for more than three generations Primo Franco, grandson of the original founder, Nino, professionally and lovingly moved this estate into the twenty first century, setting the example to other producers.Unquestionably one of the top producers of Prosecco today, the quality of the man is to be found in his wine.
Nino Franco, Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG (Veneto, Italy) Dry Vintage “Primo Franco” 2012 92 points Michael Franz Oct 1, 2013 I lean pretty strongly toward the dry side of the Prosecco continuum, but this wine is so irresistibly delicious that neither I nor anyone else could fault it on grounds of sweetness. The highly expressive aromas waft up from the glass with scents of spring flowers and ripe peaches, and the flavors recall the juices at the bottom of the bowl of the best fruit salad you ever enjoyed. This isn’t the most “serious” Prosecco you can find, but it is certainly among the most endearing. THE WINE ADVOCATE - Robert Parker - February 2012, ISSUE 199
