This proper, grown-ups’ example is made in Trentino at altitude by a producer who knows what he is doing and cares about why he’s doing it. The first thing that you will notice is that it has flavour, unlike its cut-price, junior variations. Every effort is made to conserve its natural, subtle aromatics and freshness: pressing is gentle, fermentation is cool, the whole process is in stainless steel so there is nothing to cloud the purity of fruit. Delicious with a simply grilled piece of white fish like lemon sole or sea bream, it is also a super aperitif.
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.
