Cartizze is the most prestigious cru in Zucchetto Prosecco Doc area, a very small surface (about 270 acres) made by vineyards lying between the steepest hills of Saccol and Santo Stefano in Valdobbiadene County. In our “Cartizze Alto” vineyards there’s a perfect combination of exposition, soil, with moraines, sandstone and clays which allows a rapid drainage of rainwater and a natural protection from dangerous icy rains, due to an incredibly slope of the hill. All these factors give a unique and truly sumptuous sparkling. Impressions of white peach and apricot, with a hint of apple, accompany a silky and smooth palate; a pleasant note of glazed almond on the aftertaste takes you to a lingering finish.

Superior di Cartizze is traditionally the perfect conclusion to an important dinner, with desserts, from short pastries to fruit tarts, to sweetened focaccia (flat soft bread); excellent match with mild double or triple cream cheeses, it also surprisingly pairs with shellfish, such as lobster, crab, and sea scallops.
