BackgroundEstate-bottled Bottega Vinaia is the outcome of a vision by lead winemaker Anselmo Martini at the widely recognized Cavit winery. Starting in the early 1990s, Martini sought to explore the optimum potential of a handful of extraordinary vineyards in northern Italy Trentino region that, year after year, consistently produce the highest quality grapes. This select group of family-farmed vineyards is the source of Bottega Vinaia, an exceptional line of artisan wines that reflects the authentic qualities of the Trentino terroir. Thanks to Anselmo Martini's passion and tireless drive, Bottega Vinaia has swiftly joined the ranks of Italy's top-notch premium wine producers.
VinificationHand-picked grapes are macerated on the skins for 8-10 days in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is matured partly in large barriques and partly in oak barrels for a maximum of six months to preserve the distinctive fruit flavor of this variety.
