106 ha of vineyards between San Pietro di Barbozzza, Santo Stefano and Saccol, in the municipality of Valdobbiadene, enjoy long sunny days and cool summer nights with ancient soil rich in mienral salts. The Carpene Malvolti 1868 Cartizze Prosecco Dry  has rich floral notes of of acacia and rose, with hints of Golden Delicious apples and pink grapefruit. The rounded flavour is soft and creamy with a great balance between softness and freshness.

It seems to be that the Cartizze name derives from the "gardiz or gardizze", a local expression indicating the racks used for drying the grapes, which are harvested late when showing the first signs of natural drying. This gives the wine a concentration of aromas and flavours of unusual intensity.

Founded in 1868 by the famed oenologist Antonio Carpenè Malvolti, the winery has been a crucial contributor to the history and study of Prosecco and is now run by the fourth generation of a family that specialises in the making of sparkling wines.
