The Story

Private Cartizze, the fruit of half a century of research, comes to life after 11 months of ageing in the bottle and is an evolved, persistent, elegant and particularly long lasting sparkling wine. In-the-bottle re-fermentation has shown itself to be the most interesting method for exalting the peculiarities of Cartizze which is at the very apex of the Prosecco Pyramid of Quality.

Cartizze, a particularly precious hill within the historic area Valdobbiadene Prosecco D.O.C.G., is a perfect combination of a mild microclimate and ancient land. It winds along the crest of a steep hill at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level and bene ts from excellent exposure to sunlight.

Wine Information

“…here are the slopes of Cartizze festooned with vineyards, to the care of which for nearly a thousand years men have consecrated their lives, rendering them eternal and sovereign.”

That is the way “this corner of paradise” appeared to Adriano Màdaro. The area is named for Santo Stefano, the heart of a small zone where this celebrated Prosecco is created and where the Bisol Winery has its headquarters. It is an area in which a particularly mild microclimate combines perfectly with an extremely ancient terrain. Firm rock below and crumbly stone on the surface, this fine soil has a balanced chemical composition and constant humidity, so that the grapes ripen slowly, unusually slowly…

 

The color is light straw yellow, the perlage is lively, persistent and subtile. The bouquet is as elegant as the scents of wildflowers. It is agreeably fruity with scents of apples, pears and peaches. The flavor is sapid, full and balanced with a contained graciousness and accompanied by an intense and elegant fruitiness.
