Agathe

Prosecco Superiore di Cartizze DOCG Dry

This wine has a very light straw-yellow colour, with minute and persistent bead. It is intensely fruity and floral to the nose, with persistent and fine scents; the ripe fruit (golden delicious apple, mainly) and wisteria aromas are quite clear. It is agreeable and caressing, fresh and with a very balanced body; it is harmonious, with very intense and persistent aromas and a decidedly fruity finish. It is a dessert, or end of meal wine, but it is enhanced by certain cheeses or delicate liver pâtés.

The opinion of experts

This is the pride of my family, a historic vineyard with vines that are over 60 years old and have always been cared for manually, with passion. This is the foundation for growing the best grapes for the production of the best Cartizze.

The best Prosecco grapes have always come from the Cartizze area. Agathe is an exclusive Cartizze made with grapes from vines that are over 60 years old, with a depth of taste and scents that is rarely seen.
