Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze is the tongue-twisting title given to a very specific set of sparkling prosecco wines. The title is used exclusively by wines produced under the Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene DOCG appellation in Italy, provided they are made from grapes grown on the Cartizze hill.
This is the fourth most highly rated Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze wine (based on critic scores): the 2010 vintage was given a score of 91 by Falstaff Magazin. This wine has received more awards than any other wine from the region.
This wine was crafted of 100% Glera. It poured a soft golden yellow with delicate and fine effervescence into the glass, and opened with inviting aromas of orchard fruit, stone fruit, jasmine and marzipan. On the palate this wine delivered pleasing flavors of Honeycrisp apples, pears, white peaches, and jasmine. It offered a restrained sweetness that was well-balanced with the acidity. It was creamy and soft on the palate with a rich mouth-feel and a delicate finish. It contained 23 grams/liter of sugar and 11.5% alcohol. A truly magnificent sparkling wine!
