Crisp, fresh, delicious. Killer value. Wine Enthusiast 94 points seems a bit over the top. Lol. Rating affirmed Thanksgiving Eve.

The NV Prosecco Superiore Rustico lifts up with a whimsical blend of peach skins, white flowers and hints of incense. This is silky and pliant in feel, with a creamy wave of sweet bubbles that fizzle out to reveal ripe Asian pear and pretty inner florals. It leaves a pleasantly bitter twang through the finale that keeps the mouth watering for more. The Rustico is one of the “entry-level” wines of the Nino Franco portfolio and makes for a wonderful introduction to the house style. (Lot# 21328) (Eric Guido, Vinous, December 2021)

A glass off the list before dinner. On the nose, vanilla, cream, lemon custard, ripe green apple without skin, ginger ale, peach, soft chalky minerals and wild light spring flowers. On the palate; lemon custard, ginger ale, underripe pineapple, cream, ripe green apple without skin, peach, touch of lime, baguette, gritty volcanic minerals, powdery chalkiness, well done acidity and a decent round, rich creamy finish.
