BackgroundCombine 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 result: the Cavit Collection, source of America's #1 Italian wine*.The Cavit winery is based 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. Through the years, savvy wine lovers have come to depend on Cavit's stellar range of high-quality, approachable, and versatile wines as their favorite "go-to" source, perfect for any occasion.*Nielsen xAOC + Liq 52 w/e 4/22/23
VinificationThe Glera grapes are soft pressed to yield only the best fraction of the must which, after being decanted for 12 hours, goes into stainless steel tanks to be fermented. Fermentation lasts about 15-20 days. When completed, the wine gets blended with the Pinot Noir that is vinified using the method for red wines in order to give the final blend its characteristic pink color. Once blended, the wine undergoes a second fermentation, which takes place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, in order to develop its characteristic perlage and delicate bouquet. The wine is then refined sur lie for 60 days.
ColorPeristent white foam with fine-grained perlage. Bright pink with slight cherry reflections.
