Winemaker Notes

#1 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2019

Made in the heart of the Prosecco DOCG zone, Nino Franco’s Rustico Prosecco Superiore is unquestionably the world’s finest value in a high-quality sparkling wine. Made from 100% Glera (traditionally called Prosecco), the non-vintage, light-bodied Rustico offers gorgeously elegant notes of pear, citrus and honeysuckle. The texture is creamy, soft and delicate with persistent effervescence.  

The word ‘Rustico’ dates back to an old winemaking tradition where Prosecco was made using a short second fermentation in the bottle and leaving the sediments in the wine. Although no longer the technique, the name ‘Rustico’ has remained as a reflection of quality and tradition.

Pair with charcuterie, risotto, vegetables, seafood and delicate pasta dishes.

Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of white spring flower, Bartlett pear and citrus waft out of the glass. The racy, refreshing palate is full of energy, offering crisp yellow-apple, lemon drop and orange zest flavors balanced by vibrant acidity. A perlage of small, refined and continuous bubbles provides the silky backdrop.

One of the top sparkling deals in the world, the non-vintage Nino Franco Rustico Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore exhibits a beautifully refined mousse and fresh, tart apple flavors. The wine's crisp finish pairs it perfectly with delicate appetizers. (Tasted: February 16, 2016, Treasure Island, CA)

Aromas of green apple, lime blossom and zest on the nose. Lime-curd and brioche flavors, too. It’s medium-bodied and elegant with bright acidity and fine bubbles. Drink now.

Wine & Spirits
The golden color and peach nectar scent predict this to be rich, but a potent, nutty savor keeps it balanced. It finishes clean, tight and grippy - a mouthwatering aperitif.

Nino Franco Winery Video

“Cantine Franco” was founded in Valdobbiadene in 1919 by Antonio Franco, who set out right from the start to make a quality product. One of the oldest wineries in Valdobbiadene, Nino Franco is located in the center of town and close to the countryside. It is surrounded by vineyards of extraordinary beauty, with a special terroir ripe for producing high-quality wines.

The area lies in Veneto, in the hilly strip of the Province of Treviso, that lies between the small towns of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano. Throughout its extraordinary history, the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene areas have made Prosecco into an extraordinary success story, creating over the course of time a modern, informal and vivacious Italian-Style sparkling wine that is appreciated and enjoyed all over the world; it gained DOCG recognition in 2009, and represents the top of the quality pyramid for Prosecco.

Valdobbiadene is located in the heart of the Prosecco DOCG production zone at the foot of the Prealps, a mountain range in the south-eastern part of the Alps. This region in the north-eastern part of Italy is most famous for the prized Prosecco vine and wine production because it has the greater concentration of high hillside vineyards. Vines are grown only on the sunniest parts of the hills, at altitudes varying between 50 and 500 meters above sea level, while the north-facing slopes are covered mainly in woodland. The climate throughout the area is mild, with not excessively cold winters with warm summers. The Nino Franco Prosecco produced in the Valdobbiadene area represents a synthesis of history and “naturally” superior quality.  

Thanks to a careful and wise management, the Nino Franco estate has been growing and evolving throughout four generations of producers. Antonio founded it, Nino expanded it and Primo improved the company performance. When Primo took over its management in 1982, it was a turning point for the estate. He became a pioneer of Prosecco, successfully introducing a different sparkling wine than Champagne to International markets. He has been successful thanks to his open-minded personality, his spontaneity, reliability and competence as well as his charm and ability to communicate his love for his work, and his passion to produce the highest quality sparkling wines. Today the winery is still family-owned by Primo and his wife Annalisa, and their daughter Silvia is the next generation responsible for future growth of the estate.
