ABOUT THE WINERY

In 1933, the quality of Abele Adami’s sparkling wines was so well known that he was invited to represent the entire Prosecco region at a national showcase of Italian wines in Siena. For the occasion, Adami took the highly unusual step of bottling a single-vineyard wine—the first commercial example of a vineyard-specific Prosecco—producing the first vintage of the Adami “Vigneto Giardino” Valdobbiadene Prosecco.

The Adami winery has continued to specialize in Prosecco production since that time. Abele’s son Adriano began acquiring additional vineyards to increase the winery’s production volume and broaden its scope. As a result, Adami today owns land or has well-established relationships with growers in most of the prized areas of the original Prosecco zone—which since the expansion of the Prosecco area in 2009 has been given the elevated status of DOCG. In addition to the Giardino vineyard in the hamlet (or rive) of Colbertaldo, Adami now also bottles a single-vineyard Prosecco from Col Credas in the rive (communal cru) of Farra di Soligo and from the famous Cartizze subzone. The winery also produces three blended Proseccos from the DOCG area and one (Garbèl) from the wider Prosecco DOC. In all, Adami works with around 34 different vineyards, each with its own character.

Today the company is in the hands of the third generation of Adamis, Adriano’s sons Armando and Franco, both winemakers (with the fourth generation now in training). The winery now produces more than 60,000 cases of sparkling wine from 125 acres of vineyards, a quarter owned and the rest farmed by small growers with time-honored links to the winery and sharing its commitment to quality.

ADAMI "GARBÉL" PROSECCO DOC TREVISO BRUT

Garbél is the Adami family’s entry-level Prosecco. With nearly a century of experience in the historical heart of the Prosecco production area, the Valdobbiadene DOCG, Adami begain working in the extended Prosecco denomination, Treviso DOC, in order to produce an affordable everyday sparkling wine. In 2004 they began production of the Garbél Prosecco Treviso DOC. Garbél, when referring to wine, translates in the ancient local dialect to mean dry, crisp, and pleasantly tart.

ADAMI BOSCO DI GICA BRUT VALDOBBIADENE DOCG PROSECCO SUPERIORE

With a distinct freshness and range of fruit flavors, Bosco di Gica is one of Adami's best-known wines.  A brut with 10 grams of residual sugar, the wine is perfectly balanced showing more body than sweetness. The vineyards are located in the Valdobbiadene area within the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG. This rugged set of hills in the middle of Veneto is where Prosecco has its historical roots and has been made for centuries. Bosco di Gica is the name of a historical forest (bosco) where the family's vineyards are planted today.  

ADAMI "DEI CASEL" VALDOBBIADENE DOCG PROSECCO SUPERIORE EXTRA DRY

Dei Casel is a classic style of Prosecco, which has traditionally been made with a bit of sweetness. This wine is classified as an extra dry, meaning that it has about 1.5% residual sugar. The vineyards are located in what is now known as the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG—more specifically in the Valdobbiadene area. 

ADAMI "COL CREDAS" VALDOBBIADENE DOCG RIVE DI FARRA DI SOLIGO EXTRA BRUT

Col Credas is a relatively new addition to the Adami line as a single-vineyard Prosecco. The Col Credas vineyard was purchased in 2000 and was used as a blending component for other wines until 2011, when it was judged to be of high enough quality to release as a single-vineyard wine. The wine is technically at the extra brut level, with no detectable sweetness and sharp acidity.

ADAMI "VIGNETO GIARDINO" VALDOBBIADENE DOCG RIVE DI COLBERTALDO ASCIUTTO

Adami’s Vigneto Giardino was the first single-vineyard Prosecco ever made, in 1933, showing the potential of top-tier vineyards to make unique wines at a time when it was standard practice to blend together several different vineyards. Vigneto Giardino—literally Garden Vineyard—was the family’s first vineyard, purchased in 1920. In a natural amphitheater facing southwest, the vineyard has an excellent position for high-quality grapes. Adami uses cuttings from this vineyard in its replanting program.

ADAMI "COL FONDO" VALDOBBIADENE DOCG PROSECCO SUPERIORE SUL LIEVITI BRUT NATURE

Col Fondo has been an icon tradition of Valdobbiadene for generations and has been a part of the Adami family history since the early 1900s. Grandfather Abele, first, and then his son Adriano, bottled their sparkling wine in the spring.  When the heat came in May and June it caused the wine to re-ferment in the bottle, producing what has always been called “vin col fondo."  The resulting wine was never filtered or fined, keeping the naturally occurring sediment due to the secondary fermentation in bottle.  Franco Adami is proud to continue his family's tradition of making this same wine today.  

ADAMI “CARTIZZE” VALDOBBIADENE DOCG DRY

The most prestigious vineyards in the entire Prosecco area are in a compact 260 acres (106 ha) near Valdobbiadene called Cartizze. The slopes here are impossibly steep, but the natural south-facing amphitheater produces Glera grapes of unparalleled quality. Adami’s Cartizze Prosecco is made in the typical slightly sweet style (officially designated "dry").

SEPTEMBER 2021
Adami "Col Credas" Valdobbiadene DOCG Rive di Farra di Soligo Extra Brut 2020

Editor's choice.  Dry and elegant, this radiant sparkler opens with enticing aromas of hawthorn and summer orchard fruit. Showing its Valdobbiadene pedigree, the gently sparkling palate features Bartlett pear, peach and apple before a citrusy finish. Crisp acidity keeps it balanced and energized. Dalla Terra Winery Direct.

SEPTEMBER 2023
Adami "Col Credas" Valdobbiadene DOCG Rive di Farra di Soligo Extra Brut

DECEMBER 2020
Adami "Dei Casel" Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry N/V

The NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Dei Casel lifts up with poise and precision, displaying dusty dried flowers, young pear and hints of white smoke. It impresses with a lovely inner sweetness, balanced by zesty acids and hints of spice. Seamless is the word that comes to mind, as this travels across the palate with creamy textures; yet it then resolves into a classically dry expression through the finale. You’ll be hard-pressed to stop after just one glass. This was bottled in September of 2020.

DECEMBER 2021
Adami "Col Fondo" Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore Sul Lieviti Brut Nature 2020

The 2020 Brut Nature Prosecco Superiore sui Lieviti Col Fondo pulls you close with its seductive bouquet that mixes young mango and peach skins with exotic florals and an enriching hint of almond paste. This is incredibly elegant and velvety in feel, lifted by juicy acidity while contrasting notes of butterscotch and vanilla bean with citrus-infused orchard fruits and minerals. As heady and extroverted as it may sound, the 2020 Col Fondo remains savory and fresh, leaving the mouth watering for more throughout the long yet crisp finale. Frankly, it’s hard to stop at one glass. This clocks in at less than three grams of residual sugar per liter and, unlike the other wines in the Adami portfolio, is produced through a secondary fermentation in bottle instead of tank.

AUGUST 2022
Adami "Vigneto Giardino" Valdobbiadene DOCG Rive di Colbertaldo Asciutto 2020

The 2020 Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Rive di Colbertaldo Vigneto Giardino Dry is another classic wine from the charismatic Franco Adami. This festive bottle shows aromas of honeysuckle, candied lemon, crushed stone and Golden Delicious apple. Franco writes "Asciutto" in Italian instead of the English "Dry," and there's a lot to read into that. Is this a protest against the fact that the word Dry is confusing to the consumer? Production is 40,200 bottles.

AUGUST 2022
Adami Bosco di Gica Brut Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore NV

This refreshing, easy-drinking prosecco offers flavors of white peach and golden apple with appealing hints of lemongrass. Its cool acidity and silky texture make it a versatile wine for appetizers and mild fish.

JUNE 2022
Adami "Col Credas" Valdobbiadene DOCG Rive di Farra di Soligo Extra Brut 2020

So much crushed-stone character here with citrus and black-cherry aromas. Medium-bodied with iodine and oyster-shell undertones to the blue fruit. Lemon rind at the end. Drink or hold.

DECEMBER 2020
Adami "Col Credas" Valdobbiadene DOCG Rive di Farra di Soligo Extra Brut 2019

There’s an alluring richness and smoky minerality to the 2019 Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Col Credas Rive di Farra di Soligo that’s impossible to ignore. Yellow flowers, young peach and crushed stone create a remarkably pretty display. It’s silky and smooth; yet it has a weightless feel, as this takes on an almost-salty savoriness which is further amplified by brisk acids and hints of spice. Col Credas is packed full of character, yet it’s wonderfully clean, poised and refreshing. This was bottled in September of 2020.
