Cartizze, Valdobbiadene Superiore Di Cartizze DOCG — 2021
Cartizze refers to a hilltop area in Valdobbiadene above 1,000 ft characterized by rocky terrain that winds along the crest of the steep hillside. Benefiting from firm rock and crumbly stone, complete sunlight exposure and continuous ventilation, this microclimate is an area of rare value. In Cartizze, Glera ripens at a slower rate and, consequently, enjoys a richer, more harmonious acidity. The 260 acres of Cartizze are owned by 140 growers. Bisol’s flagship holding is 7 acres and it is considered to be of the highest quality, or even the “Grand Cru” of Prosecco.

“The 2021 Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze Dry shows a pretty level of sweetness that is supported by fine, soft beading. The wine is steady and creamy with plenty of stone fruit, pastry cream and yellow rose. This wine has the softness and the volume to pair with spicy Indian vegetarian appetizers.”
