Awards and honors
Cartizze Ruggeri Dry or, to be more precise, Valdobbiadene Superiore Cartizze. This wine has noble origins and, with its elegance, it represents the highest oenological expression of these lands. In this article we can find all the elements that characterize the variety Prosecco cultivated in this particular area called Cartizze: class, fruits, flowers. The optimal exposition of the plants and the composition of the soil, with limestone, clay and sand deeply influence this particular wine. Usually, Cartizze is characterized by sweetness. In fact, in the past the grapes were harvested late, even at the end of October or in the first days of November. It could happen that the low temperatures of the nights stopped the fermentation that although restarted with the warmth of the spring, giving again life to the yeasts made inactive during the winter. These processes were really slow and produced pleasant wines with great perlage, intense perfume and sweet, fruity taste. Single variety wine making, 100% Glera.
