Wine of the Day: Mionetto Cartizze DOCG

Cartizze DOCG

In Italy’s tranquil Prosecco region, just outside the town of Valdobbiadene at the base of the Casen Mountains, is a natural amphitheater known as Cartizze Valley. From here, some of the most highly prized sparkling wines of Prosecco are crafted with delicate care. Considered the “Grand Cru” of Prosecco Superiore DOCG, the area experiences ideal exposure to the sun, with vineyards dotting steep terraces that rise up to 1000 feet, with excellent temperature variation to create fruit with a juicy, fruit-forward profile, while maintaining freshness, acidity, and a lightness that keeps Prosecco unique to any other sparkling wine in the world. Mionetto celebrates the area with their Mionetto Cartizze DOCG Dry ($45), a part of the winery’s luxury collection, crafting a refined, elegant, stylish sparkler with classic Italian style. With delicate bubbles, a light effervescence, and a crisp, bright palate, the inviting wine is the ideal accompaniment to toast special occasions. The bubbly is layered with green apple, Asian pear, blanched almond, and marzipan, with just a touch of sweetness on the end. This is your celebration wine. #Cheers
