Valdobbiadene Superiore
di Cartizze Dry

Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin

"Cartizze" wine, a true pearl of Italian wine-making, originates from a small "cru" called - like the wine itself - "Cartizze", situated in the heart of DOCG wine producing area of the municipality of Valdobbiadene, which thanks to its excellent geoclimatic combination produces excellent grapes for a sparkling wine of renowned quality. Characterised by a semi-sweet flavour and dense even in colour, one may appreciate its intensity, its tempting, broad aromas, and its well-rounded flavour.
