Adriano Adami Vigneto Giardino Prosecco di Valdobbiadene DOCG 2017 (750ml)
Adami sells four Prosecco wines in the U.S., two of which are Rive wines; besides Col Credas, the other is 2011 Vigneto Giardino - Rive del Colbertaldo. Both are fine wines, rich in the floral-appley-citrusy flavors of the grape (once called “Prosecco,” now called “Glera”) with the weight, concentration of fruit character and long finish that mark a high-quality sparkling wine. While the Col Credas is a Brut Prosecco, the Vigneto Giardino is a Dry Prosecco -- which in the typical nomenclature of sparkling wines means a sweeter style. It is round and flavorful, with about 20 grams of residual sugar (RS), a style rich enough to suit dishes that have fruity flavors or mild sweetness.
