About the wine

The Adami Prosecco Bosco di Gica comes from the premium Prosecco Superiore DOCG area. The hilled vineyard area surrounding the towns of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano are home to some of the best Glera grapes for Prosecco production. If you’re looking for a Prosecco of real class, Bosco di Gica our suggestion.

Delicate jasmine, acacia flower and wisteria notes on the nose are joined by apple, peach and lemon skin. The palate is dry, pure and fresh with white peach, lemon zest and a touch of elderflower. The vein of acidity keeps the wine crisp and sapid and the refreshing fruit character lingers on the finish. Perfect as a sophisticated aperitif, this would also pair well with delicate fish dishes and vegetable antipasti.

Grown on vineyards between 150 – 300m above sea level, the grapes benefit from cool night-time temperatures during the ripening season which means they can stay on the vine for longer and develop more aromatic complexity. Bosco means forest in Italian and the wine name refers to the ancient forest that is found next to the vineyards.

About the wine

In the winery, grapes are very lightly pressed to preserve pure fruit character and to avoid any unwanted flavours being transferred from the skins. After a cold and slow first fermentation, the wine undergoes a secondary fermentation in steel tanks. Before bottling, all impurities are filtered out for a delicious, elegant Prosecco.

The Adami winery is widely regarded as one of the best producers of premium Prosecco in Italy. Third generation family producers, they make Prosecco at several quality levels including the sought-after Rive Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG. They showcase to the world that, below the surface, Prosecco is a quality-driven, terroir conscious production area that deserves attention from wine-lovers everywhere. If you look closely, you’ll see Adami’s wines on wine lists at Michelin-starred restaurants and five-star hotels across the country.
