PROSECCO SUPERIORE DOCG


Prosecco Superiore di Cartizze D.O.C.G., also known by the simple name of Cartizze, comes from vineyards located in the sandstone hills in the middle of the town of Valdobbiadene, in a micro-area called Cartizze.
The natural balance created in the years between soil and climate causes a late ripening of the grapes, to the advantage of a higher sugar content.

An accredited hypothesis seems to be that which derives the name Cartizze from "gardiz o gardizze", a local expression that indicates the racks used for drying grapes. In fact, in the Cartizze area, the grapes are harvested late, when they show the first signs of natural drying. This gives the wine a concentration of aromas and flavors of unusual intensity. Another hypothesis makes the name "cartizze" derive from the dialectical appellation which indicates the shell of the panicle, called "cartiza".
The grapes, ready for harvest, were wrapped bunches of grapes in "cartize", to increase the sugar content of the grapes. The wine thus obtained, Cartizze in fact, 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 appreciation for sweet wines had a collapse, up to the present day, where very little sugar and an "unloading" color are required for the sparkling wine. In this way the processing of the crus of S.Stefano conformed to that of the common prosecco, keeping only the use of the late harvest. Today's Cartizze divides almost all the qualities with Prosecco, but underlines the fragrance, much richer and more intense.

Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Superiore of Cartizze is the highest type (crù) of Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, DOCG wine of the province of Treviso. It is produced in a small area of ​​106 hectares extended around Cartizze, a locality included in the territory of San Pietro di Barbozza, a hamlet of Valdobbiadene. Besides having a limited production it is also considered by many to be one of the best prosecco ever.
