OK, so before you dismiss this wine as a bland neutral ‘wet cardboard’ type of Pinot Grigio from Italy, then think again.
From the Cavit cave cooperative in Trentino, this has real style. The grapes were selected from small vineyard sites at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites in Bleggio Superiore, north of Lake Garda. Situated 400-600m above sea level, on steep slopes with deep glacial soils, the vineyards are south/south-east facing to maximise exposure – essential in these mountainous areas.
A fresh, lifted nose with aromas of stone fruit and citrus and honeyed, lightly spicy notes. The palate is taut and linear with lime, citrus characters balanced by minerality, structure and length. Fine and complex on the finish with the potential to age for 5 years or more.13% vol.
