Discover Cartizze Dry by La Tordera at Wine Affairs: The Elite of Valdobbiadene



Wine Affairs, the premier wine distributor located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, NY, is proud to introduce an exceptional offering from La Tordera: Cartizze Dry Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. This elite Prosecco is crafted in the renowned Cartizze hill area, historically celebrated as the pinnacle of Prosecco production.


 Cartizze Dry: The Pinnacle of Prosecco 


Cartizze Dry is produced from Glera grapes (minimum 85%) and other local varieties, grown on the esteemed Cartizze hill, which spans 106 hectares within Valdobbiadene. The south-east to south-west exposure and the clay soils originating from sandstone rock provide an ideal terroir for these grapes.


 Viticulture and Vinification 


The vineyards date back to the early 20th century, with many vines over a century old. The traditional double-arched cane pruning method ensures optimal grape quality. The yield is carefully controlled, with a maximum of 120 quintals per hectare. Harvested by hand in the second part of September, the grapes are quickly brought to the winery and pressed gently. The must is fermented with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 18°C. The sparkling process occurs in steel autoclaves at the same temperature for at least 30 days, resulting in a wine with an alcohol content of 11.5% vol, a sugar content of 18-19 g/L, and total acidity of 5.5-6 g/L.


 Tasting Notes 


Cartizze Dry boasts a bright, straw yellow color with tinges of green and a creamy, fine perlage that spreads elegantly in the mouth. The bouquet is complex and fruity, reminiscent of a "fruit basket" filled with multiple varieties of apple, pear, and yellow flowers. On the palate, it is creamy, juicy, and savory, with a pleasantly soft finish.


 Suggested Pairings 


This Prosecco pairs beautifully with dry pastries such as almond pastry. For the best experience, serve it at 6°-8°C in a white wine tulip glass. Store in a cool, dark place to maintain its quality.


 Fun Fact 


2018 marked the 100th anniversary of this vineyard, originally planted after the First World War by the great-grandfather of the current Vettoretti family, who still meticulously manage the estate today.
