Carpene 1868 Extra Dry Prosecco DOCG
Available by the dozen
Antonio Carpene, scientist and chemist, was a visionary who introduced Methode Champenoise to Italian viticulture. He established the first Italian School of Oenology and worked with the great biologists of his time, Robert Koch and Louis Pasteur, to drive innovations in the Italian winemaking industry. The passions and traditions have been handed down from father to son ever since.
Antonio Carpene was the first winemaker to fashion a quality Veneto Prosecco in the traditional Charmat sparkling process. Founded in 1868, Carpene Malvolti have been crafting the finest effervescent wines from grapes harvested off mature vines planted to the beautiful verdant hillsides of Veneto. The rolling lanscapes at 200 to 300 metres above sea level in the historic DOCG districts of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene are blessed by excellent exposure to sun and the most favourable ripening conditions. A unique winegrowing terroir within a romantic and idyllic pastoral environment, breathtaking vistas and steep slopes covered by vineyards, so special that it has been nominated for World Heritage listing.
Straw yellow colour, greenish tinge and fine mousse. Gentle, fruity bouquet with ripe expressions of apple. Fruit forward palate in an extra dry aromatic style, kept soft and dry by delicate acidity, finishing on a pleasant apple aftertaste. An ultra fine perlage, persistent, conveying a lively and elegant mouthfeel. Excellent as aperitif or as a base for cocktails, matches perfectly with light Mediterranean cuisine.
Carpene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG
Available in cartons of six
Just below the Alpine Dolomites of Veneto, the family growers of Treviso have been Prosecco making for generations. The breathtaking vistas at Valdobbiadene are at the very heart of Prosecco DOCG, the most auspicious parcels of vine are planted to an elite slope, designated Superiore di Cartizze.
There are a mere hundred hectares of Glera vineyards, stretching out between the undulating landscapes San Pietro di Barbozza, Santo Stefano and Saccolworthy, worthy of the moniker Superiore di Cartizze. The soils here are mineral rich and marine, they vary considerably from sandstone to alluvial clays, all share a providence for yielding the world's most toothsome sparkling wine. Grapes are encouraged to ripen fully, harvested late in the season and vinified to the local Conegliano Valdobbiadene method.
Straw yellow hues, regal mousse. Rich floral notes of acacia and rose, golden delicious and pink grapefruit, oerfumed and suave. Well rounded palate, brimming with soft pastel characters, redolent with the freshness of fruit ripening in the orchard, creamyness, textural throughout, a wine of impeccable balance, generosity of flavour and extended length.
