Nani Rizzi is a family winery specialising in bubbles, fine Prosecco bubbles. The winery, named after the founder Giovanni, has been making bubbles since 1887. It is located in the commune of Valdobbiadene which is known for making some of the finest expressions of Prosecco. The wines from this area tend to have more intense fruit with more complex characters. This particular blend is 85% Glera, 10% Bianchetta, 5% Perera.
It is a sweeter style but it is evenly balanced and has an abundance of fruit to enjoy. Ripe tropical fruit, bananas, peaches and floral headline the show. The bubbles are soft and fresh. This is a wine to enjoy either before dinner, over a light lunch or just an afternoon on a deck or in the garden.
