#1 ENTHUSIAST 100 2019
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.
Wine & Spirits Review
Ripe in the middle, dry in the end, this wine has a lovely freshness thats emphasized by the cleansing effervescence, a floral scent like a rose garden after a spring rain. Contrast that with a deeper undertone of toasty lees, and youve got a sparkler thats balanced and easy to drink in vast quantities. Serve as an aperitif or with roast scallops.
Wine Tasting Notes
"Rustico" opens with firm bubbles and crisp acidity. Light aromas of banana on the nose lead to fresh pear on the palate. It finishes clean and works well as an aperitif or matches with lighter hors-d'ouevres, salads, and light seafoods. Rustico is for everyday consumption and Primo encourages traditional Italian service in a wine glass (no flute) to get the most out of his wines.
