Solid roots of effort and tradition have given the life-blood to wines exuberant, and full of fruit. Following grandfather Abele and father Adriano, the youngest generation, Armando and Franco, both of whom graduated in Oenology, have brought to the house of Adami a refined technological approach to the art of producing some of the best spumante wines of the Valdobbiadene. The direct involvement in the success of their Prosecco production is demonstrated in Franco’s current leadership of the Valdobbiadene Consorzio. This is how the family expresses the values of their land: sound work, respect for human relationships, a sense of hospitality and continuity between past and present. An estate, and above all, a family.
In 1920 Grandfather Abele purchased the "Giardino" vineyard (whose name “Zardini” dates to 1717) from Count Balbi-Valier. A southern facing amphitheatre with shallow calcareous soil, the Prosecco vines cling to chestnut stakes and it is here that the Adamis nurture the production of their greatest spumante that is recognized as Prosecco’s first "Cru".
The family's other vineyards include those in the steep Valdobbiadene hilly area, where mixed soils predominate. The clay, often calcareous, low-nutrient, and well-drained soil is fairly shallow, particularly at higher elevations. The climate is generally moderate, with cold winters and warm, but not humid, summers. Adami also has vineyards in the northern part of the Province of Treviso, just outside of the historical DOCG. These vineyards are at a lower altitude but still enjoy a similar climate of cool nights and hot days, ideal conditions for expressing the typical fruit nose of the Glera grape (previously known as Prosecco).
"The flavors feel brisk and inviting in this refreshing wine. It's nimble and light, with bubbles lifting the ripe peach and melon notes. Ideal for seafood antipasti, like a chilled calamari salad." 90 Points, Wine & Spirits
