Cavit Chardonnay 2012

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Chardonnay 2011 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ There’s a reason why this finessed bottling is one of Sicily’s most iconic whites. It doles out juicy yellow apple, mature pear, white grapefruit, yellow peach and tropical fruit accented by notes of vanilla and hazelnut, with fresh acidity. Subtle oak adds complexity and structure.

Cavit is a company deeply rooted in the region to which it belongs: Trentino. A small area in the north-east of Italy where the vine, olive tree and Mediterranean-type vegetation live side by side with spruces and larches of the Alpine flora.

Cavit is a company deeply rooted in the region to which it belongs: Trentino. A small area in the north-east of Italy where the vine, olive tree and Mediterranean-type vegetation live side by side with spruces and larches of the Alpine flora. A land of ancient traditions and culture, where the presence of man, with his villages, castles and cultivated terraces blends in harmoniously with the majestic Alpine landscapes. The image that best represents Cavit, a large co-operative composed of a large number of small wineries, is that of the vine that produces healthy grapes only if the roots and the other parts of the plant all perform their roles properly. Created in 1950 to meet the needs of the winegrowers in the area to offer the very best quality and market their wines in a modern way, today Cavit represents over 4,500 winegrowers who are members of 11 cellars and 65% of the wine production in Trentino (around 7,000 ha). Cavit harvests, examines and selects its raw materials from the best produce of the cooperative member cellars, which undergoes strict controls at every stage: from refining to bottling. Cavit today is one of the major companies in the wine business, operating successfully at national and international level.The headquarters in Ravina, where the production and logistics facilities are also located, house the Wine Cellar, Sparkling Wine Cellar and Wine Shop. Cavit also owns Maso Toresella, used for corporate entertaining, on Lake Toblino. Read less

The 125-acre Ognissole estate, near the town of Fragagnano in Apulia’s Manduria region, was established in 2000 by the founders of Feudi di San Gregorio. Over the past 20 years or more, Feudi di San Gregorio, in southern Italy’s Campania region, has played a leading role in fostering a winemaking revolution that extends across southern Italy, and has led to a remarkable resurgence of regional wine industries. The Ognissole range taps into the enormous potential of local, ancient varieties in an effort to bring prestige and recognition to these treasures of the south. Ognissole seeks to revitalize this ancient area, bringing Apulia to the forefront among world-class wine regions. Production Area Apulia (Puglia), Italy. Grape Varieties Chardonnay, with a small amount of Verdeca. Vinification The grapes are pressed softly and the must is cooled down to a temperature of 50°F to achieve a natural clarification. Afterwards, the must is fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 61°F where it is kept until it is bottled, usually in February/March. Color Light straw with greenish tints. Bouquet Fresh notes of orange blossom, thyme, rose and lavender. Taste Fresh, crisp, and mineral, with a hint of salinity and a fruity aftertaste. Maintains a very good balance between softness and acidity. Serving Suggestions Pairs well with seafood, shellfish, vegetables and soft cheeses.

Diamond Chardonnay 2010 - 87 points, Wine Advocate/ …a fine value from Recanati. It was aged and fermented in a mixture of tank and oak. Rather pure, straightforward and fresh, it is charming and easygoing, pleasing for early consumption, with crispness and a rather nice finish. This perky and refreshing wine is not at all thin, has some intensity on the finish and it drinks awfully well for this level. This is a rather nice deal, although I’d recommend drinking it young, however long it theoretically lasts. Consider it at peak now.

Diamond Chardonnay 2010 - 88 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Soft toasted-brioche and hay notes add depth to the orange rind and apple fruit center. Balanced and refreshing, the ripe fruit flavors flesh out the palate, transitioning onto the medium-length finish. Glimmers of sweet spice and peach pit linger on the close.

/ Pungent scents of charred oak and orange peel. Juicy flavors of pineapple and guava. Charred oak dominates the lemon-driven close.

/ Green-hued straw. Spiced apple and pear on the nose, with anise and pungent herbs adding complexity. Brisk, sharply focused citrus and underripe orchard fruit flavors are firm and a bit dry, but pure. Finishes bright and clean, with good citrus bite.
