Cavit Collection Pinot Noir Vigneti Delle Dolomiti IGT 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes for America’s #1 Pinot Noir are harvested in hilly areas throughout the province of Trento, Grave del Piave in the Veneto region and Grave del Friuli. The 100% Pinot Noir grapes are picked at peak maturity in the second and third weeks of September. Fermentation takes place over 6-8 days under controlled temperatures of 30˚C in small stainless steel vats. The wine then is placed in larger oak barrels where it rests on its lees until malolactic fermentation has occurred. It is further aged in large sized receptacles to guarantee a complete refining at a temperature of 13 to 15˚C. This silky smooth red is medium-bodied, with well-defined fruit redolent of red berries and cherries and soft, supple tannins. A youthful, vibrant purple. Aroma: Delicate and alluring aromas of black cherry. Enjoy with grilled or roasted red meats, poultry, flavorful vegetarian entrees, risottos. Also enjoyable with flavorful fish entrees, such as salmon, tuna, and swordfish. Enjoy at room temperature.

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
