Zucchetto Cartizze - Brut
Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore di Cartizze DOCG
WINE PROFILE AND TASTING NOTES
Cartizze is the most prestigious cru in Valdobbiadene Prosecco D.O.C.G. area, a very small surface (just about 270 acres) made in vineyards lying between the steepest hills of San Pietro di Barbozza and Santo Stefano in Valdobbiadene county. In our Cartizze vineyards there’s a perfect combination of exposition, soil, with moraines, sandstone and clays which allows a rapid drainage of rain water, and a natural protection from dangerous hailstorm, due to an incredibly high slope of the hill. All these factors give a unique and truly sumptuous sparkling wine. 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.
FOOD AND WINE PAIRINGS
The perfect conclusion of a memorable dinner, with desserts, from pastries to fruit tarts and sweetened focaccia. It’s an excellent match with mild-, double- or triple-cream cheeses. It also surprisingly pairs well with shell ﬁsh, such as lobster, crab and sea scallops. Perfect served at 43/44 °F.
Eight months in stainless steel tanks, one month in bottle.
