‘Bosco di Gica’ is the ancient name of the location where the family vineyards are grown and is also the name of their best selling Brut Prosecco. The Giardino vineyard (historically ‘Vigna Zardin’) has been in the Adami family since it was originally purchased in 1920. The Vigneto Giardino Dry Prosecco is one of Italy’s very best, with a remarkable fruity fragrance that is delicately aromatic.
Glera (95-97%) and Chardonnay (3-5%) blend to produce a super prosecco, dry, racy and structured, with pure, well defined apple and pear fruit and some toasty notes to add depth. The mousse is fine and gives a sense of succulence to the mid palate. Really persistent and complex finish – sophisticated prosecco to show what can be done with a mind to quality and attention to detail.
“There are two sides to Prosecco. Often it is known for its easy drinking style, however, Adami brings the other side. It still maintains the quintessential freshness but has a depth of complexity and texture that lends itself to more versatility with food.”
The NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Bosco di Gica punches well above its price point, boasting an intensely smoky and mineral expression on the nose that pulls you close to the glass. Beneath, I’m finding notes of pear and sweet herbal tones. It’s soothing and creamy yet balanced by brisk acids, as ripe orchard fruits satiate the senses, leaving a salty twang that resonates through the finale. Wow. This is a pleasure to taste. This was bottled in September of 2020.
