Spumante (sparkling wine) owes its name to the froth (spuma) caused by the sudden release of part of the gas dissolved in the wine following the drop in pressure once the cork is pulled. The characteristic effervescence of sparkling wines is the outcome of a rather complex production process. The development of carbon dioxide that gives the wine its sparkle is achieved after vinification by means of refermentation in a controlled environment with the addition of sugars. There are essentially two sparkling wine production methods: the classic method, as used to produce Champagne with refermentation in the bottle, and the Charmat method that involves refermentation in sealed recipients.
For over 90 years, Adami has been producing only Prosecco (Valdobbiadene docg and Treviso doc). Adami is therefore a specialist in Prosecco in its various interpretations, always traditional and high quality, expressing the different characteristics of each hillside. Adami performs some 90 secondaty fermentations over a course of a year, which ensures that its sparkling wines are always fresh, conveying the complex, unmistakable and immediate impression of fresh fruits, that Adami likes to define as "macedonia" (fruit salad). Adami describes a sparkling wine as "asciutto" (trans.: dry) when the finish is dry and leaves the mouth feeling clean and fresh. "Dry" then, conveys that natural, pleasurable "attraction" that invites the second and third glass, whether enjoyed by itself by itself or as a partner with light fare.
Feudi di San Gregorio
Feudi di San Gregorio is at the dorefront of the oenological renaissance taking place in southern Italy. Since the mid-1980s, it has followed an exemplary path to rewrite the history of viticulture in our area-Irpinia- where the vines have always co-existed in perfect harmony with forests and fruit trees. A Project constantly focused on the enhancement of our premium grape varietals, ideal raw material for producing great wines.
The ancient town of Cortona rises on a high hill not far from the cities of Siena and Perugia. On one side the wide plain, on the other side the hill and its hamlet. This is the view which can be enjoyed from the new Santa Cristina cellars, constructed in 2006 to confirm and renew the tradition of the wine of the same name, first produced in the year 1946. Over time, Santa Cristina has become a reference point for connoisseurs, and not merely these consumers, thanks a constant commitment to high quality. The care and attention always given to both the vineyard work and the work in the cellar have been the stimulus for constant innovation and for measuring professional work and capacities with both native and international grape varieties. The result has been the creation of a family of wines, all different from one another but distinguished by the same artisan style, fruit of the indissoluble link between the vineyard, the terroir, and human contributions and input.
