The history of the Adami estate began in 1920, following Abele Adami’s purchase of a vineyard located in a natural amphitheatre on the hills of Valdobbiadene in Veneto. Situated in north-east Italy, this estate is known for the quality of its cuvées, produced in the appellations of Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG and DOC Cartizze.
This Col Credas – Rive di Farra di Soligo Brut 2017 cuvée by Adami is produced from a vineyard located at an average altitude of 350 to 400 metres. The vines are planted on clayey, shallow soils. The term "Rive" refers to the steep vineyards located on south- and southeast-facing hillsides.
Winemaking and ageing
Light pressing is followed by a gravity-fed settling of the musts. Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures (17-19°C) with yeasts cultivated by the estates. Ripening on fine lees lasts for 3 months in tanks. The second fermentation, at 15-17°C, is followed by cold, tartaric stablisation (-4°C).
The Col Credas – Rive de Farra di Soligo Brut 2017 by Adami is 100% Glera.
The wine is a beautiful straw yellow colour. The effervescence is delicate and persistent.
The generous and balanced nose mixes floral notes (wisteria, acacia) with delicious, fruity aromas (crisp apple and pear).
The ample and aromatic palate seduces with its refreshing acidity, persistence and indulgent finish. Harmonious and elegant, the palate perfectly echoes the fragrances in the nose.
Food and wine pairings
The Col Credas – Rive di Farra di Soligo Brut 2017 by Adami goes perfectly with light entrées, seafood and fish (e.g. a bass fillet with dried tomatoes and hazelnuts).
For an optimal tasting, serve between 7 and 8°C, ideally in an ice bucket.
