Adami’s un-disgorged, sui lieviti wine is pale straw yellow and lightly cloudy, as expected. The aromas are at first grassy and herbaceous, suggesting something like thyme and tarragon. Later, I get fresh white bread and its crust. The palate continues the herbal quality; this isn’t a fruity wine, and it offers little of the pome fruit and apricot I associate with Glera. It skews more toward lemongrass than lemon flesh, if that makes sense. The mouthfeel is a bit coarse, and the bloomy mousse washes clean in firm acidity. Despite the lees it’s not overtly savory, but it is a textural, ample wine that is a good partner for hearty foods.
