Angelo and Andrea Adami’s families nurtured vines in Soave and Valpolicella for generations, and their grapes were always highly sought after by the most prestigious producers in the region. However, it was not until 2004 that they began crafting their own wines under the Corte Adami label. Nestled in the Castelcerino cru, Corte Adami’s Soave vineyard boasts predominantly volcanic soil, creating the perfect environment for the indigenous Garganega grape. Adjacent to Soave, Corte Adami’s Valpolicella vineyard is located just a few kilometers west. Their Mezzomonte estate, situated in Ferrazze produces the Corvina, Corvinone, Molinara, and Rondinella grapes that form the foundation of their Valpolicella and Amarone.

They utilise an intricate passito (drying) process where grapes are laid out on trays over the winter, gradually raisining for approximately three months. This gentle dehydration reduces the grape’s weight by a third, concentrating the sugar, acidity and flavour of the remaining juice. This process is used for both red and white grapes, contributing to the creation of the dry Amarone and the sweet Recioto Di Soave.
