This wine is very pale straw-yellow in colour with a persistent perlage of fine bubbles.It is intensely fruity and floral with very persistent and delicate perfumes. Good mature fruit (golden apples in particular) and wisteria blossoms make themselves evident. Cartizze is gentle, caressing and fresh as well as rounded and well-structured. A wine that has great harmony and a long, intense aromatic persistence. Decisively fruity on the finish. Enjoyed as a dessert wine or gran finale, it can also go wonderfully well with certain cheeses or a delicate liver patè.

Superiore di Cartizze D.O.C.G. Area
Cartizze, or to be more precise Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze, represents the highest oenological expression of the area. This wine epitomizes the finesse, elegance and delicate fruit and floral aromas of the grapes grown in the exclusive and extremely limited Cartizze area. The fortunate exposure of the hills and the particular soil composition (consisting mostly of limestone, clay and sandstone) give origin to this highly characteristic and therefore greatly sought after wine.
Cartizze traditionally has a delicate vein of sweetness.
