The Cartizze is the higher quality Prosecco DOCG and it is produced in a limited area of 106 hectares situated in the DOCG production area in San Pietro di Barbozza (Valdobbiadene) municipality. This territory is recognized as an excellent quality production area because of the microclimate and terroir characteristics. The champagnisation for this Prosecco is mainly in the Dry version.

The production area of the grapes is situated among 19 municipalities around the little city of Asolo. The Asolo Prosecco is the only designation of origin Prosecco that can use the Extra Brut (very low sugar level). The wines that are appointed with the “Asolo – Prosecco” DOCG (denominazione di origine controllata e garantita) can be: DOCG Asolo Prosecco, DOCG Asolo Prosecco “frizzante” and DOCG Asolo Prosecco “Spumante Superiore”.

The term “Rive” refers to the steep hills that characterize the territory. Inside the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene area there are 43 “rive” or river banks, and each of them expresses a different peculiarity of soil, exposure and microclimate.
