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, , encapsulates 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. It has a pale straw yellow colour, a thin and persistent perlage, an intense aroma and and a dry, fruity flavour. To be served at a temperature of 8/10 °C.

Their Grand Cru release from the Cartizze Vineyard is the crown jewel in their impressive collection of Proseccos. Cartizze is definitely the smallest, yet deemed the best vineyard site in all of the Valdobbiadene – Italy’s premier Prosecco growing region in the Veneto. Like top Burgundy producers, only a few special wineries share the production of this Grand Cru vineyard site. This is a softly textured, creamy sparkler with elegant, pin-point bubbles. This Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze is plush and succulent with delicate floral tones backed by fresh peach, pear and wild sage notes. This Cartizze Grand Cru delivers a lovely mineral tone that adds sensations of dryness and minerality to the long finish. This is a great example of the distinct Cartizze style, quality & personality. Delicious, top-quality Prosecco!
