Producer/Region:

Established in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero. The leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. Their aim is to produce authentic, well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varieties.

All aspects of production, from grape selection through to vinification. From maturation, blending and bottling, these are meticulously overseen by Araldica’s winemaking team of Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese, assisted by Boutinot’s Tony Brown MW. They source from a range of private growers and cooperatives, after all they have long term relationships, principally in Veneto, Friuli, Lombardy, Sicily, Puglia, Abruzzo and Sardinia.

Grapes are selected parcels of Glera grapes grown northeast of Treviso. Firstly, they are hand harvested at optimum ripeness to give the required balance between aromatics and good acidity. Secondly, gentle pneumatic pressing followed by slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel. Second fermentation in pressure tanks, lasting 4 weeks.

Glera is believed to be an old variety, and the name Prosecco was derived from the village Prosecco near Trieste, where the grape may have originated. It is a highly productive grape that ripens late in the season. Therefore it has high acidity and a fairly neutral palate, making it ideal for sparkling wine production. Glera’s aromatic profile is characterized by white peaches, with an occasional soapy note. That is to say, the wine is light-bodied and low in alcohol, 8.5 percent is the minimum permitted ABV for Prosecco wines, suggesting it as a refreshing summer beverage or as an aperitif.
