Cartizze D.O.C.G. represents the qualitative excellence of the Prosecco Superiore area: it is a sparkling wine with a fine taste and excellent aromaticity. Every sip expresses the best expression of the Glera grapes, with intense notes of ripe fruit and delicate wisteria flowers.

Growing Conditions

At the centre of Valdobbiadene hills stands the Cartizze hill, our region’s most prestigious area, and the one to which we have always dedicated the utmost care and attention. This is reflected in our company logo, which depicts a heart pierced by an arrow symbolising passion.

Cartizze, or more precisely Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze D.O.C.G., represents the very pinnacle of our region’s winemaking. It is in this small but highly-prized area that one finds the ultimate expression of the finesse and elegance of the delicate, fruity and floral aromas of the Glera grape. The ideal slope aspect and unique composition of the soil, formed mainly of limestones, clays and sandstones, are the foundations that contribute to creating this highly distinctive and refined wine.

The SQNPI protocol (National Quality System for Integrated Production), recognised at European level, is a quality certification that guarantees sustainable and environmentally friendly production. The aim of this certification is to apply agronomic methods that reduce the use of chemicals, energy and water in the management of the vineyards. In 2019, Ruggeri has decided, hand in hand with its winegrowers, to join the SQNPI programme.

Food Pairing

Cartizze Dry is the perfect choice for the final flourish of the meal and with desserts. It is traditionally served with panettone or focaccia, dry confectionery and puddings, but is also wonderful with selected cheeses and delicate liver pâté dishes.
