Flat-out gorgeous from start to finish, the 2019 Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze mixes power and ripeness with stimulating acids and a soothing bead of fine bubbles to create a wonderful balanced expression. Yellow florals, ripe apple, musky pear and sweet spices make for an alluring display. It’s crisp and juicy, offset by an inner sweetness that’s impossible to ignore; yet it completes the expression perfectly. This is listed as dry, yet there’s about 25 grams per liter of residual sugar here. That said, it frames the expression perfectly to create a highly pleasurable Cartizze Prosecco.
