Valdobbiadene DOCG Spumante Superiore di Cartizze is a sub-denomination covering a very small area of vineyards located in Valdobbiadene among the steepest hills of Santo Stefano and Saccol; a tiny amphitheatre consisting of marl, sandstone and clay soils that allows Glera grapes achieving full maturation and which, moreover, guarantee an unusual concentration of aromas. In this case the sparkling wine, whilst maintaining the freshness of Prosecco, becomes sweeter, encapsulating a special abundance of perfumes reminding the flavour of soft fruits like apricots and peaches, which then blend into a hint of orange flowers and roses. This gentler flavour extends the persistence of the aroma making Cartizze the ideal choice to accompany a special dessert. It has a pale straw yellow colour, a thin and persistent perlage, an intense aroma and a sweet and fruity flavour. To be served at a temperature of 8/10 °C.

Wine AdvocateThis is a soft and creamy sparkling wine with dense, foamy bubbles. The NV Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze Dry is plush and succulent with delicate floral tones backed by fresh peach, pear and wild sage. The Cartizze cru always delivers a very pretty mineral tone that adds sensations of dryness or crushed mineral that contrast the residual sugar. This is a great example of the distinct Cartizze personality. Some 20,000 bottles were made.

Wine EnthusiastHeady aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine and white stone fruit lead the way on this round semisweet sparkler. On the silky palate, tangy acidity brightens ripe white peach, green apple and candied tangerine slice. A creamy mousse provides the polished backdrop.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant version, with balancing acidity finely meshed with subtle flavors of poached apricot, pastry, lemon cream and tarragon. Lightly smoky on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,660 cases made.
