Winemakers sing about '9 Symphony' Prosecco


(By Kate Carlisle)
Verona, April 3 - When crooner Don Ho composed his
Tiny Bubbles tune (later immortalized by Liberace), he might not
have been singing to lovers of the joyfully effervescent
But one particular producer of the much-loved sparkling
wine made in the region of Veneto believes her Prosecco is
something to sing about...and to.
On April 7, makers of Ninth Symphony (Nona Sinfonia)
Prosecco are ready to pop the cork and debut the first vintage
produced to the sound of music.
In the halls of VeronaFiere at the 47th edition of
Vinitaly, one of the world's largest and most important wine
fairs, violins and harps will play Beethoven and greet
enthusiasts bellying up to the region of Veneto stand ready to
see if a grape grows just a little sweeter when serenaded.
Every year more than 4,000 exhibitors take part in
Vinitaly in the northern city of Verona that brings together
around 150,000 manufacturers, importers, distributors and wine
lovers from around the world.
For Veneti (those from the region of Veneto), Prosecco is
part of their past, present and most certainly, future.
Since at least 1937 when cultivation of the Glera grape
used to make Prosecco was production-wise bottom of the rung,
the noble little fruit has risen to become the most widely grown
grape in areas of Valdobbiadene, Conegliano and the other
thirteen municipalities in the province of Treviso.
Some 5,000 hectares of vineyards, 3,000 small-scale
growers and 460 wine-makers are dedicated to putting sparkle
into our lives.
With the premiere of the Ninth Symphony, the young
winemaker Claudia Adami hopes to put her mark on a unique
product that transmits the influence of musical harmony on wine.
Adami worked with agronomists and oenologists to create
the Prosecco that has been gently lulled from the fields to the
The same three harpists and two violinists of the Cornuda
Philharmonic orchestra who accompanied the entire production
process at the Adami cellars will play for the stand's visitors.
"This event is one of the many innovative initiatives
showcasing the winemaking tradition of the Veneto region, which
exports wines that make up 30.8% of total national exports,"
Veneto Regional Councilor Marino Finozzi said.
A UK and US market darling, Prosecco is a splendid
expression of light and elegance.
Adami, who comes from a winemaking family and is one of
the region's youngest producers at 22 years old, promises to
pour a Prosecco with decisive perlage and a creamy, fresh,
musical palate.
