Description

Rich and robust with smoky wood and fire side aromas which mingle with red berries and spiced vanilla on the nose. The palate is dry and finely structured with a very typically Italian sweet and sour twist leading to brambles on the finish.

Producer Details

Cavit is a modern and forward-thinking co-operative group in the mountainous Trentino region of northeast Italy whose 11 cellars are responsible for a massive 65% of the region's wine production. The endless permutations offered from their members' 7,000 hectares of vineyard, combined with an intriguing palette of indigenous and international grape varieties, enable Cavit to offer a broad range which excels at every level. The scale of production, combined with ultra-modern winemaking facilities, understandably makes Cavit one of Italy's most reliable sources of well-made, competitively priced wines, in particular Pinot Grigio. However, with wines such as Arele Vino Santo, Graal Metodo Classico (awarded 'Tre Bicchieri' for the 7th time and voted Gambero Rosso's Sparkling Wine of the Year in 2010) and the outstanding Maso Cervara Teroldego, chief winemaker Anselmo Martini is producing wines which rival the best of the Trentino region.

In the Vineyard

Produced from fruit grown in the Valle del Sarca, on loose stony-limestone soils caressed by the warm wind coming from Lake Garda. The Lagrein grape is indigenous to Italy. It prefers warm, sheltered areas and produces wine of noteworthy concentration and complexity.

In the Winery

'Dunkel' is traditionally vinified as red wine at 28-29 degrees C with long maceration on the skins in small stainless steel tanks. It is then moved to barriques for 12-14 months and subsequently matured in small oak barrels for a further 6 months.

Grapes: Lagrien
