        Description

        Unquestionably one of the best producers of Prosecco, established in 1919.

        Background

        Nino Franco writes the first chapters of a fundamental biography with steadfast curiosity: the story of Valdobbiadene Prosecco in the most important international kitchens. From the production of the first vintage Prosecco in 1983 to the creation of a cocktail list for the Mayfair Regent Hotel in New York, Primo and Silvia bring a wine with a unique character to the world, one that is shaped by the encounter between architecture and nouvelle cuisine, between pleasure and culture. These are wines that form a cloud in the glass when poured, just as Gualtiero Marchesi wanted. Sparkling wines with a personality similar to white pepper and an aromatic profile that recalls a fruit basket by Caravaggio. But most importantly, these are wines that are strongly rooted to their territory of origin, Valdobbiadene, where Nino Franco separately vinifies each single plot, «chiseling» sparkling wines that are the authentic expression of the territory.

        Tasting notes

        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 flavours balanced by vibrant acidity. A perlage of small, refined and continuous bubbles provides the silky backdrop.

        Winemaking

        Charmat method: pressing, destemming, cooling of must and fermentation at a controlled temperature in steel tanks. Second fermentation in autoclave.
