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

Clean and crisp with pear, lemon and melon notes on the nose and palate followed with hints of almonds and fresh herbs.

This customer favorite has it all - bright citrus aromas, a blast of peach and melon flavors, and crisp, clean finish. Great with all light cuisines, and possibly the world's most popular choice for cocktail parties.

An enjoyable and quaffable wine that can be relied upon in spontaneous situations. Peach, ripe melon, lemon zest and a dash of herbs create an interesting ensemble. Solid and smooth in the mouth, and very food-friendly.

Nice banana nut, ripe peach, grapefruit and mineral tones render a wine with caressing roundness and fullness. There's some citrus and spice on the finish, and a touch of sourness at the end.
