Cavit Trento Brut Altemasi Graal Ris 2003
This wine comes from the highest and most suitable vineyards in Trentino, particularly those located in the hills of Trento, in the highlands of Brentwood and the Valle dei Laghi. The grapes are collected in special boxes, white vinified and aged in stainless steel tanks and barrels. The second fermentation in the bottle is followed by a stay on the lees for at least 48 months. Then disgorgement is made. This sparkling wine is a golden color, with shades of green just hinted at. The bouquet is complex, with hints of honey, ripe apple and hazelnut. It is full flavored, elegant, balanced and of excellent material.

/ Gambero Rosso presents the English and German version of Vini d'Italia 2008, the best-seller book about Italian wines that has become a mainstay for both professionals and wine-lovers. A unique opportunity to get know and to taste a wide selection of the best Italian wines.
Summer Sparklers/ This ambitious sparkler was disgorged in 2005, its long aging on the lees yielding a creamy texture and nutty flavors. Fruit balances the leesiness with scents of baked pear and apple skin. It's rich enough for veal sauteed with mushrooms.

Our Selections of Top Sparkling Wines and Champagnes/ “A yellow gold, tasty wine made in small quantities by the metodo classico. A blend of 80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Nero. Aromas of rich, ripe baked pineapple with lees notes. Very fresh, crisp and rich attack with ripe tropical fruit flavors on the well-balanced palate. Finishes dry with lingering notes of honey and pineapple.”
/ With more than eight years of careful aging since the harvest, this opulent sparkler boasts a unique balance between elegance and power. The aromas are feminine and floral but the mouthfeel is intense and persistent with lingering tones of caramel and yellow rose.
