The Giardino Vineyard, purchased in 1920, is a south-facing natural amphitheatre-shaped vineyard. Probably the first example of a Prosecco from single vineyard in the whole DOC zone, it was presented at the 1st Mostra dei Vini Tipici d’Italia, held in Siena from 3 to 19 August 1933, as “Riva Giardino Asciutto”. The Giardino Vineyard best expresses the concept that at Adami we like to call “fruit salad”: the complex but approachable and never repetitive sensation on the nose of a crateful of fresh fruit.

Presentation: Straw yellow. Creamy mousse and delicate, long-lasting bead Nose: Admirably rich, intense, and harmonious. Lovely, crisp spiciness with hints of apple and peach, plus wisteria and acacia blossom. Palate: Rich, forward fruitiness, with supple, velvety mouthfeel. Admirable fullness and length, closely mirroring the nose. A wine of great balance and elegance.
Food recommendation: Excellent aperitif, perfect for all social occasions, especially festive gatherings. Matches well with dry pastries, foccaccia breads, fruit tarts and fresh fruits, especially peach and melon.
Serving temperature: Chill to 7-8°C., ideally in an ice-bucket at the table
Serving glass: Medium-wide white wine glass. Avoid using tall, slender flutes: while they maximise enjoyment of the bead, they inhibit release of the wine’s bouquet.
