B-21 Top Recommendation
First taste of Nino Franco Rustico was in Ipanema, oddly enough, long before Prosecco was a household name or even known in the U.S. We have championed this sparkler ever since. Hard to believe that was two passports ago in 2004. How pleasing to read Rustico was selected as the #1 Wine of the Year (2019) by the Wine Enthusiast! The wine has remained true to the origins of Prosecco, that is, from the hillside vineyards of Valdobbiadene – the source of the very best Prosecco. This is a serious sparkling bargain. Congratulations to family of Nino Franco as 2019 marks 100 years of winemaking in Valdobbiadene. Now that is something to celebrate.
