Le Colture Prosecco Cartizze
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene|
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.
