The mill that gives its name to the Borgo del Molin was built in the 17th century by the Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia, at that time administrator of Conegliano. The mill is one of the most important and authentic testimonies of the city’s agricultural past, at the roots of its history. But it is also part of Fabio Zardetto’s childhood memories, the place where he spent many an afternoon with his grandma, helping her to grind wheat and playing close to the millstream that channelled the water to the wheel. For this reason, with this Prosecco he has chosen to pay homage to a sadly forgotten symbol of the hardworking people of Conegliano through the ages
Although he hailed from Conegliano, Pino Zardetto was so enamoured of Cartizze as to make it the first important sparkling wine in the history of his company. His son Fabio, revisiting the same hills and vineyards and working with the same growers, now re-proposes its unmistakeable flavour together with the slice of wine-grape growing and wine-making history it represents, essential for the tradition of this land. The prestigious result is produced in limited quantities from highly selected grapes right in the heart of the Cartizze terroir.
