The World Of Prosecco

Why is D.O.C.G. “Superiore” vs. D.O.C.?
D.O.C.G. plants produce less grapes = better quality. Grapes exclusively grown on hillside (colline or “rive”) which means less to no humidity and plant roots are not sitting in water after heavy rain because water goes to lowest point. These are all things that contribute to healthy, high quality plants that produce the best grapes because they are less susceptible to environmental damage.

D.O.C. plants grown on flat land only, more treatment to plants to combat issues of being on flat land, good but lesser quality.

D.O.C.G. Cartizze
Absolute top quality within the denomination, Superiore di Cartizze comes from a sub-zone that has had its own specific regulations since 1969. It covers just 107 hectares of vineyards, lying amidst the steepest hillsides of San Pietro di Barbozza, Santo Stefano and Saccol, in Valdobbiadene. The perfect combination of a mild microclimate and ancient soils, made up of moraines, sandstone and clays, give these wines unique characteristics. The maximum yield is of 12 tonnes of grapes per hectare. The nose is characterized by complex scents that recall apples and pears, citrus fruits, aromas of peaches and apricots and hints of roses, along with a note of almonds in the aftertaste. Its flavour is well-balanced and elegant, with very fresh, mellow fruit underpinned by delicate, fine bubbles.

D.O.C.G. Rive
The term “Rive” indicates, in the local way of speaking, the slopes of the steep hills that are characteristic of the zone. This category of wine highlights the diverse expressions of Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Rive wines are often obtained from the most precipitous, high-quality vineyards, from grapes grown in a single commune or area thereof, thus underlining the characteristics that a particular terroir gives to the wine. Within the denomination there are 43 Rive, and each one expresses a different and distinctive combination of soil, exposure and microclimate. In the Rive, yields are reduced to 13 tonnes of grapes per hectare, the grapes are picked exclusively by hand and the vintage is always shown on the label.

D.O.C.G.
Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore is a D.O.C.G. sparkling wine produced exclusively in the hills of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene zone, from the Glera grape variety, grown in a denomination made up of 15 communes (municipal areas). The permitted grape yield in the vineyards is 13.5 tonnes per hectare. Each winery, by skilfully mixing the grapes from the various micro-zones of the area, creates the blends (“cuvées”) that act as ambassadors for its own, distinctive winemaking philosophy. Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore may be enjoyed in Extra Brut, Brut, Extra Dry and Dry versions, classified according to their level of residual sugar.
