[One of my favourite Prosecco!] Estate: Antonio Franco founded Nino Franco in 1919. He named the estate located in Valdobbiadene, at the foot of the Prealps in the Veneto region of northern Italy “Cantine Franco”.

    … the Nebbiolo-based juice. We've all been trained to expect boisterous wine when sipping Barbaresco but this seemed more like a big Pinot or Gamay.

I suppose there's as much good to be found in red fruit as there is in brooding, dark fruit - especially when paired with salami…
