Adami, Cartizze Dry, Prosecco Valdobbiadene Superiore NV
While you may expect this sparkler to be more full bodied coming from the cru of Cartizze – possibly the best site for the Glera grape – the beauty of this wine is its elegance. The nose is at once citrus, fruity and floral: mandarin, ruby red grapefruit and lemon curd marry with white flowers and acacia that jump from the glass. The length of the wine is incredible, and my favourite pairing is with fried sweetbreads.
