Free shipping on orders over £100 using code FREE100
Cartizze is the feather in the cap of the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG area. This rare Prosecco comes from a single 45 year old vineyard: Col Maset.
Bright, pale yellow with greenish tinges and an intense, fine and persistent perlage. Intensely fragrant wildflowers, subtle apples, orange peel and peach emerge from the glass with remarkable richness, complexity and sheer purity. The palate and mousse are deft, light and delicate and the off-dry sweetness is exquisitely counter-balanced by the burst of natural acidity. What stands out is the purity of the floral fruit with a touch of chamomile and almond. Long persistency.
Food pairing: slightly sweet or delicate cold cuts, relativley straightfoward cooking method and preparation to bring out natural and essential flavours.
Vegetarian: salads, tofu, soft cheeses.
