BackgroundWhat do you get when you combine a half-century of winemaking expertise, the dramatic landscape and terroir of northern Italy, and a profound enjoyment of the good things in life? The answer is simple: the CAVIT COLLECTION, source of Americas #1 Italian wine. Through the years, savvy wine lovers have come to depend on the CAVIT COLLECTION as their favorite go-to source for stylish, elegant and versatile wines, perfect for any occasion. This stellar range of high-quality, food-friendly wines is produced at the Cavit winery in Trentino, a picturesque landscape of mountains, lakes, apple orchards and medieval castles. Vineyards in this region enjoy the warming effects of the "Ora del Garda," a dry, balmy breeze that sweeps across Lake Garda and protects the fruit from external moisture and disease. Contrastingly cool evenings promote rich, intense aromas and flavors in the grapes. Winemaking is overseen by Anselmo Martini, a 20+ year industry veteran and one of northern Italy's top enologists. With carefully selected grapes chosen to preserve their bouquet of apple, citrus and tropical fruit, Cavit Oak-Zero Chardonnay is fermented on the skins but never in oak.
VinificationGrapes are carefully selected and vinified utilizing the most advanced technology. Cold fermentation in state-of-the-art, thermo-conditioned tanks preserves the natural fruit and inimitable freshness of the wine. This chardonnay never touches any oak.
