"Rustico" is just off-dry and opens with a firm bubble 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. Also great for brunches mixed 1/2 and 1/2 with peach juice to make the "Bellini Cocktail."

Wine AdvocateThe appropriately named NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Rustico shows good typicity and character. There is nothing fancy here, just a tasty glass of Prosecco. Today, the Rustico comes across as a bit four-square. Perhaps I am being too hard on this wine given its price, but frankly it underperforms relative to the other selections in this range. With a little more body, the Rustico could be a much more interesting wine. This is Lot 11 138. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014.

Wine EnthusiastThere's a direct approach here in terms of the sparkler's effervescence that gives the wine an incredibly clean and pristine quality. Rustico is off-dry and that slight sweetness helps move aromas of chopped fruit, banana and peach to the forefront.

Wine SpectatorA spiced version, juicy and lacy in texture, this offers flavors of poached quince, apricot and orchard blossom. With a clean-cut finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 60,000 cases made.
