PROSECCO SUPERIORE DOCG
The Prosecco Superiore di Cartizze D.O.C.G., also known by the simple name of Cartizze, comes from the vineyards located in the sandstone hills in the middle of the municipality of Valdobbiadene, in a micro area called Cartizze.
The natural balance created over the years between soil and climate causes a late ripening of the grapes, to the advantage of a greater sugar content.
An accredited hypothesis seems to be that which derives the name Cartizze from "gardiz or gardizze", a local expression that indicates the racks used for drying the grapes.
This gives the wine a concentration of aromas and flavors of unusual intensity. Another hypothesis derives the name "cartizze" from the dialectal name that indicates the envelope of the panicle, called "cartiza".
The grapes, ready for harvest, were wrapped bunch by bunch in the "cartize", to increase the sugar content of the grapes. The wine thus obtained, the Cartizze, was therefore a dessert wine, closer to the Picolit or the Passiti. This type was very popular at the beginning of the century. With the last post-war period the liking for sweet wines had a collapse, up to the present day, where the sparkling wine is required very little sugar and a "discharged" color. Thus the processing of the S.Stefano cru matched that of the common prosecco, maintaining only the use of the late harvest.
Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze is the highest type (crù) of Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, DOCG wine of the province of Treviso.
Cartizze is almost exclusively sparkling in the Dry version.
It has distinctive qualities of complexity, persistence, elegance and verticality with respect to the other types of denomination.
The structure of the Cartizze is given by the Glera grape, with the unmistakable scent of unripe, slightly aromatic apple, with a long and enveloping aftertaste, with notes of apricot, pear and rose, with aromas of wisteria and linden flowers and a strong and distinct perfume of hazelnut.
GRAPE VARIETIES AND VINE CULTIVATION: Glera grapes reach full maturity in October and this leads to a greater concentration of aromas and flavors and the possibility of giving the sparkling wine a more sweet and dense taste without compromising its freshness. 85% Glera 10% Bianchetta, 5% Perera.
HARVEST: Grapes are harvested by hand.
VINIFICATION: The base wine is obtained by careful fermentation in white, until almost total depletion of the original natural sugar. The Cartizze is left to undergo the winter colds that strip it of the Tartars and cause it to be clarified.
