"I tasted two very different vintages from the village red from Villadepera, the much warmer and drier 2017 and the radically different 2018. The 2017 Camino de los Arrieros, which is approximately 25% Juan García, 15% Bastardo, 20% Trincadeira Preta, 10% Rufete, 10% Mandón and the remaining made up of white grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in 1,000-liter oak foudre and 500-liter barrel for six months. Despite the character of the vintage, the wine is only 12.5% alcohol, and yes, it feels a little riper when tasted next to the 2018, but it's still a medium-bodied, lightish and pale red that is characterful and easy to drink, with some cherries and wild herbs and very fine, almost unnoticeable tannins. It's simply delicious. 8,800 bottles were filled in June 2018." —Wine Advocate

"Nino Franco's non-vintage sparkling Rustico Prosecco is unquestionably the world's finest value in a high quality, Champagne look-alike. The non-vintage, light-bodied Prosecco di Valdobiaddene Rustico offers gorgeously elegant, fresh, lively fruit, notes of bread dough and citrus, and persistent effervescence." —winemaker

Wine Anthology Team Review-A fantastic prosecco for the money! From the best area of prosecco, Valdobiaddene, this bottle possesses everything a real prosecco lover would want : aromas of white spring flower, pear and citrus with flavors of crisp yellow apple, lemon drop and orange zest. Refreshing and silky on the palate, a perfect addition to any brunch! Cheers!

"A bright, deep golden color with greenish hues. An outstanding, elegant and balanced wine with intriguing fragrances of white flowers, citrus fruit, pear and apple overlaid by subtle honey and an agreeable mineral sensation. The fine acidity merges well with the rich body and the long mineral and fruity finish." —winemaker

"Earth, underbrush, and mineral notes along with brooding black fruits inform this wine’s inviting bouquet. Dense and layered. Its 15% alcohol is in balance with the wine’s strapping personality and helps provide for a silky texture and a finish with no hard edges." —winemaker

"Red coloured wine, with average depth, showing signs of evolution; good aromatic richness with noticeable aromatic progress of floral notes of violet and red berries, a hint of green pepper, provided by one of the varieties in the blend, leads to a spicy aromatic finish. Medium to fully-bodied wine, expertly framed by well-developed tannins, combined with good acidity and ripe fruit; delivers a delicate, sharp finish." —winemaker
