Cavit Chardonnay 2012

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Chardonnay - A Best Value, Parker's Wine Bargains/ This wine offers a toasty perfume of poached pear and tropical fruits. Creamy textured and savory, it is a well-balanced effort with very good length.

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

Chardonnay 2007 - 89 Points, Wine Spectator/ This has nice cut and length with a mouthwatering undertow carrying the yellow apple, quince and pear flavors. Fine minerality extends the finish. A very pure, unadorned style.

Chardonnay 2007 - 88 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is a plump and rounded Chardonnay that manages to deliver citrus and melon fruit alongside ample notes of toasted grain. It's harmonious and elegant, leaving it extremely easy to drink now and over the next year.

100 Top Values of the Year/ Initial sulfur blows off to reveal a bright, lemony chardonnay. This is clean and dry, with a touch of minerality. For any roast fish.

Chardonnay 2006 - 92 Points & Recommended, Wine Spectator/ Opulent, with loads of flavor on the nose leading to a full-bodied palate. Shows good fresh acidity. All in harmony. Listed second among Jo Cooke's Recommended Wines from Sicily.

Chardonnay 2007/ Spicy ripe apple, with hints of flowers and golden syrup, follow through to a full-to-medium body, with lots of piecrust, enlivened by bright, almost tangy acidity. The finish is long and spicy.

Chardonnay 2007 - 89 Points, Wine Advocate/ I was very impressed with the 2007 Chardonnay, which isn’t the heavy behemoth of prior vintages. Super-ripe tropical fruit, butterscotch and sweet spices are layered into the frame of this quintessentially Sicilian Chardonnay. The wine reveals notable length and a clean, refreshing finish that provides balance. The 2007 is an especially elegant Chardonnay from Planeta.
