Description

This straw-coloured Pinot Grigio is rich and round with distinct floral, apple and citrus notes on the nose. On the palate it shows honeyed, nutty flavours balanced by crisp, lemony acidity. Good weight and texture through to 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

Made from Pinot Grigio grapes grown in the Valle dei Laghi, a valley with a sub-Mediterranean climate and medium fertile, well-drained soils. Grape yield is medium low (70 hl/ha).

In the Winery

The grapes are softly pressed and fermented in stainless steel and a controlled temperature of 20 degrees Centigrade. The wine is matured in stainless steel tanks for 4 months before bottling. Vinification is carried out off the skins and the must is obtained from a soft crushing of the whole bunches, to prevent the pink colour of the skins from being extracted. Selected yeast and a controlled temperature of 20 degrees C are used to aid fermentation. Maturation for 4 months in stainless steel vats before bottling.
