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 Piedmont. Our 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, maturationBlending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's winemaking team of Claudio Manera, Lella Burdese and Carlo Manera - assisted by Boutinot's Tony Brown MW. Production is 12 million bottles annually and the wines are exported to more than 20 countries worldwide.
They source from a range of private growers and cooperatives, with whom they have long term relationships, principally in Veneto, Friuli, Lombardy, Sicily, Puglia, Abruzzo and Sardinia.
From Barbera and some Pinot Noir grapes grown in the Monferrato hills in Piedmont.
Short pre-fermentation maceration on skins at a low temperature followed by gentle pressing. Fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures with cultured yeasts.
Aromas of fresh strawberry and redcurrants. The ripe and juicy plum and cherry characters on the palate give excellent substance and weight, all balanced by crisp acidity.
Serve chilled with roasted Mediterranean vegetables meats and tomato based pasta dishes.
