Adami, Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore (Veneto, Italy) Bosco di Gica Brut NV

($18, Dalla Terra): The oceans of Prosecco on the market combined with the indiscriminate use of that term makes that category of Italian sparkling wine a minefield.  One sure way to avoid an unpleasant experience is to reach for a wine made by Adami, one of the region’s top producers, which bottles a fine range of Prosecco.  This one, Bosco di Gica, from the first vineyard the family owned, is their driest.  With a delicate, white flower type aroma and fruitiness, it’s an ideal aperitivo.  It works well with simple seafood because it has enough depth and substance, another quality that distinguishes it from run-of-the-mill wannabes.
