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 generationsPrimo 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.

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. These wines are quite simply the best Prosecco you can find perfect as an aperitif or try the Rive di San Floriano with your meal.

Nino Franco, Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut (Veneto, Italy) Vintage “Vignetto Della Riva di San Floriano” 91 points Michael Franz Oct 1, 2013

Made from a steep site overlooking the town of Valdobbiadene, this shows a gorgeous delicacy in its bouquet as well as a very soft, creamy mouthfeel resulting from a full 3 months of contact with its gross lees after the first fermentation. Although it is designated as brut, you’ll find flavors recalling marmalade and candied orange peel, but the well-integrated acidity cleans up the finish beautifully. "Heralding from a beautiful steep sloped vineyard on the edge of Valdobbiadene, the Riva di San Floriano brings a star bright, perfume spice nose through to its ultra crisp apple and spice palate. This is an elegant example of a single vineyard Prosecco with lots of vibrancy and a long juicy finish. This wine does well as an aperitif and alongside white fish, or lighter risottos."
