Cavit is a modern and forward-thinking co-operative group in the mountainous Trentino region of northeast Italy whose 11 cellars are responsible for 60% 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 10th consecutive year in 2013) and the outstanding Maso Cervara Teroldego, chief winemaker Anselmo Martini is producing wines which are among the best of the Trentino region.
Grapes are grown in the Veneto and Friuli regions. Vines are cultivated on the hillsides at an altitude ranging from 200 to 400 m above sea level in a climate which features hot summers and cold winters.
The grapes are harvested at the end of August/beginning of September. After soft pressing, the cooled must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature between 18 - 20 degrees C. It is then left to develop for three months in stainless steel tanks before being bottled.
Good with light starters, fish dishes and crisp Summer salads..
