Last Wednesday a trip up to that London and a delightful lunch with Douglas and the people behind the latest hot prosecco name, Nino Franco. A full post to come detailing the wines but in this photo you can just make out a chunk of the chalky-limestone soil, pinched from a Nino Franco vineyard. It is this white rock that supplies the distinctive mineral-edge to the wines. Grave di Stecca Brut is made exclusively from Glera fruit plucked from the small Grave di Stecca vineyard.
