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. American wine critic Robert Parker scored Rustico 89/100. Antonio Franco founded the "Cantine Franco" winery in Valdobbiadene in 1919. This winery is proud to be one of the oldest in Valdobbiadene, located in the town centre, not far away from the countryside and the vineyards. Primo Franco was one of the first pioneers to export the Prosecco and to introduce a different sparkling wine than Champagne into the international market.
Nodi has a floral bouquet, with wisteria and rose aromas. Fruity notes of pear and gooseberry. A lime note is present in the palate, where it is also intense and smooth, with hints of stone fruit. Fine and persistent bubbles. The complexity is supported by good acidity with a pleasant savoury hint in the finish.
