Adami Col Credas Brut Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Rive di Farra di Soligo 2016

Treviso, Verona, Veneto, ItalySerious, single vineyard, vintage dated wines of place : that's Adami's model. Not what you have come to expect from Prosecco. The Adami family have been farming these soils for three generations, more than 90 years of experience in the terroir of Valdobbiadene. This is from sustainably farmed glera up to 100 years old growing at 350m on the dry calcareous clay soils of the steep sloped Col Credas vineyard, in the rive (communal cru) of Farra di Soligo, nested in the famous Cartizze subzone. 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. This was in contact with lees for a minimum of three months before second fermentation in autoclaves (pressurized tanks), initiated in batches up to 3 times / year, dependent upon sales demands. The wine can be held in chilled tanks for up to one year between first and second fermentations. My bottle began second fermentation in tanks in July 2017. Very developed, with truffles and mushroom overruling fruit, leaving just a small cushion of dried apple, dried orange, and river stone in its wake near-dry wake. If you're looking for a fizz with ample development, look here.Tasted: 07 April 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 36.00 private wine shops Producer: Adriano AdamiDistributors: Bonvida Wines
