  • Introduction

    • 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.

  • Vineyard Profile

    • Soil: The firm rock below and crumbly stone on the surface endow the grapes with marked acidity balanced out by the natural sugars which are preserved and exalted by the heroic manual grape harvest.
    • Elevation: 300 meters a.s.l.
    • Exposure: South
    • Training: Typical Valdobbiadenese pruning, attributable to the double curtain system.
  • Vintage Report

    • “The 2022 vintage was certainly a complex one with above-average temperatures recorded in the Territory from the end of April to the beginning of August, requiring focus to ensure a perfect state of vine health and development. The gradual reduction in temperatures up to the harvest and the providential rains at the end of August nevertheless allowed Bisol1542 to reach volumes capable of satisfying the demand for Prosecco Superiore forecast for 2023. Qualitatively, in the winery, thanks to the adoption of specific protocols for crushing, vinification and second fermentation, the 2022 vintage seems to offer encouraging results given the complexity of the season and the wines that we have tasted are already better than the previous vintage” – Lino Scaravonati, Head of Production of Bisol1542

  • Cartizze, Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG — 2022 – James Suckling – 93 Points

    “Complex nose of mixed citrus fruit, a melange of meadow flowers and some wet sandstone. Equally intriguing on the palate, where some almond and fresh cream savoriness overtakes the fruit to give a long finish. Then limey fruit reappears in the aftertaste. The well-poised bubbles give excellent support. Delicious and super-refined Prosecco. This is so much more than an aperitif. One of the best out there."

    “Orchard-fresh Fuji apples and Asian pear aromas lift from the glass immediately as the cork is pulled, followed by subtle white flowers, ginger and crushed stone notes. The palate is electric and vibrant with a subtle hint of nectarine giving way to a saline and mineral note with a creamy perlage and a long finish.”

  • Cartizze, Valdobbiadene Superiore Di Cartizze DOCG — 2022 – Wine Spectator – 90 Points

    "A creamy Prosecco, with hints of vanilla and pastry cream to the baked peach and strawberry fruit, candied ginger and lemon peel flavors. Boasts bright acidity, which carries the fruit and spice notes on the finish."
