Region: Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG, Veneto, Italy
Varietal: At least 85% Glera
Tasting notes: 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.
Producer: The rich history of Bisol dates back to 1542, when the Bisol family first began cultivating grapes. Today, Gianluca Bisol has assumed the role of president and CEO while his brother, Desiderio, holds the position of chief enologist and technical director. With 500 years of winemaking tradition, Bisol produces a range of organically farmed and internationally recognized Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG crus.
Vineyard and Winemaking: The Bisol family cultivates more than 20 vineyards located in the best-suited areas for wine production, including the renowned Cartizze hill. A superior focus on promoting vine health through environmentally sustainable techniques is at the forefront of Bisol’s viticulture methodology. In the cellar, vinification is completed so as to maintain the different expressions of the unique sites and soils. “Chartice” — today’s prestigious Cartizze hill — is considered to be of the highest quality, or even the grand cru of Prosecco. The Cartizze zone is a single commune and the Bisol family has taken advantage of the rich soils, slopes and vineyard exposure — known as “terra” — to capture the soul and spirit of Prosecco. The terra is directly responsible for the quality in Bisol’s superior DOCG cru wines.
