Adami Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Vineyard Garden 2019- A Personification of Prosecco Superiore

Awarded Decanter 94 Points, this top Prosecco Superiore from Franco Adam described by Parker et al. as "pleasing all the senses thanks to bright aromas of peach and pear with light touches of honey and saffron. The finish is extra smooth and creamy with a distant touch of spicy effervescence." Parker added, "I have tasted old vintages of Franco Adami's Vigneto Giardino and can attest to the wine's remarkable age-worthiness." We thought this is a good reflection on the fine spumante bottle we tasted this afternoon: a classy, "dry" wine bringing together elegance, harmony, freshness, crispness, but above all, the flowery fruit salad aromas. Not aggressive, it gives vivid fruit—dry entry; fruity finish. This is a prestigious wine because it is from:

  1. the 'Rive. A warm site';

  2. the Valdobbiadene DOCG Superiore;

  3. Lean and shallow chalky lying directly on the bedrock;

  4. very very steep slopes;

  5. a high altitude; and

  6. the historic land of Giardino, meaning garden

  7. It Is from a single vintage 2019

Wine-making is modern. The base wine put in contact with the lees for three months(low-temperature fermentation, free-run juice selected. Second fermentation(35 days natural fermentation) takes place in pressure-tight steel tanks, making the difference to Champagne. The maker, the only makers of the best spumante, is a real specialist. This bottle gives lots of freshness and crispness and is much more than some Champagnes. 20g/litre. It is a Tre Bicchierre from Gambero Rosso, as well as a 5-Star from Cucina & Vini. Scores are good—for example, Decanter 94 and Antonio Galloni 93.
