Corte Adami Wine
Next week, I am going out to Verona to tutor some tastings with clients and so I’ve been sorting out some information on the wines we’ll be tasting. It involves two producers so we thought it would be a good idea to make an offer with their wines for this week.
The first producer is Corte Adami based in Soave who has both Soave and Valpolicella in various guises. The Soave is headed by the Classico version named Cimalta, top of the hill, as it’s the highest vineyard in the Classico area. The wine is fresh, vibrant and really full of flavour and it makes a wonderful partner to fish and seafood.
Moving onto the reds, there are 3 wines that we can offer beginning with Valpolicella Superiore. It’s a really fruity style with delicious berry fruit. The big brother is the Ripasso version where the wine has been refermented over the lees of the Amarone. It’s a richer style with almost mince pie style aromas with a richer palate and a generous finish. Delicious! Finally, there is the Amarone Della Valpolicella which is a real blockbuster with plenty of cherry fruit, exotic oriental spices, cocoa, liquorice and floral aromas. The palate is powerful yet graceful and elegant, showing lovely harmony between its rich fruit, its tannic and acidic structure, its alcohol and its slightly viscous mouthfeel.
