Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze
The King of Prosecco
The Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze is produced in a small area of 107 hectares (between the fractions of Saccol, San Pietro di Barbozza, Santo Stefano), well known for its uniqueness. It is considered as the King, the best Prosecco and the most exclusive.
It’s also very rare, given the small area of origin.
The name Cartizze comes from “gardiz” or “gardizze”, local expression to indicate the metal sheets used to let the grapes wilt. Later the grape is harvested, when it shows the first signals of drying. This gives the wine a combination of unusual intense flaovour.
77vintidó can offer to the lucky few connoisseurs, a limited quantity of bottles of real Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze, produced exclusively inside this area, from the hills of Follo (Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene).
The Superiore di Cartizze is usually realized in the Dry edition. The Brut is almost unique, produced by Renato Casali di Follo, with the label 77vintidò. A very limited edition of 7722, is produced with the traditional classic method: amazing, to be tasted!
