Le Colture's Cartizze Dry constitutes an expression of Prosecco capable of associating the traditional pleasantness and fragrance of the type with greater expressive complexity. In fact, the Cartizze area, whose name derives from the ancient dialect term "gardiz" which indicated the trellises on which the bunches were placed to dry, is one of the most vocated and prestigious of the already well-known Valdobbiadene area. This area is situated between the steeper hills of Santo Stefano and Saccol, where some of the finest Proseccos are produced.
The Valdobbiadene Superiore Cartizze Dry from the Le Colture winery is made with only Glera grapes from rows rooted on the soils of the Cartizze hill, which consist of sandstone marl and clay and are located at an altitude of about 300 meters. The harvest is carried out slightly late, generally from mid-September to mid-October, and the grapes are then transferred to the winery for soft pressing followed by alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Once the fermentation process is complete and after a short period of maturation, the wine is transferred to an autoclave where the second fermentation takes place in accordance with the Charmat or Martinotti method, with the second fermentation lasting for about 30 days at a controlled temperature.
