Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco ($15)
Brunches, picnics, wedding showers, and other daytime celebrations this season call for a fresh, bright-as-spring bubbly—preferably one that’s priced moderately enough to serve many at your table. Chill up some bottles of Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco ($15), a sparkling wine that brims with ripe fruit and cream notes, but finishes with a lemony lift for zippy refreshment. You’ll also appreciate the wine’s relatively low alcohol content (11 percent), making it especially suitable for day drinking.
