SUPERIORE DI CARTIZZE
This wine is a sparkling straw yellow filled with light greenish hues enlivened by a fine, elegant and persistent perlage. The aromatic profile is fragrant tending towards fresh aromas of summer pears alongside delicate notes of white flower petals and wild herbs. On the palate the structure has a confident balance and crystalline zest alongside a delicate mineral note. In the mouth it is soft with a long finish bringing back the pleasant citrus tones encountered in the aroma.
