Tasting Notes

It is an extraordinarily intense and unctuous Vino di Meditazione with a deep golden copper colour, super-ripe aromas of dried apricots, sultanas and prunes. Opulent and concentrated on the palate with amazingly intense flavours of raisins, apricots and honey. The velvety, round, fruit characters coat the mouth leading to a very long and extraordinarily complex finish with refreshing acidity and surprising elegance.

Producer details

Cavit is a leading co-operative in the mountainous Trentino region of northeast Italy. The winery began as a consortium of associated grape growers in 1950, with a dedicated winery at Ravina di Trento built in 1964. Today It unites 11 separate cellars and their combined 4,500 grape growers across 7,000 hectares of vineyard, to produce an impressively broad portfolio from an intriguing palette of indigenous and international grape varieties.

In the vineyard

Produced from Nosiola grapes cultivated in vineyards situated between mountains at the foot of the Dolomites and connecting Trento to the northern shores of Lake Garda. Lake Garda strongly influences the climate, blowing constant warm, dry winds down the valley, whilst at night the temperatures are cooled by the breeze blowing down from the Dolomites. The resulting climate is sub-Mediterranean. Soils are mainly limestone. The well ripened grapes are harvested in October.

In the winery

After the late October harvest the grapes are dried for about six months on cane racks (called arele) in well-ventilated rooms; during this period they are enriched by the presence of Botrytis Cinerea (noble rot). Pressing takes place in spring (around Easter - hence the name Vino Santo) and is followed by a long fermentation and an eight year maturation period in small oak barrels.

Food Recommendations

Superb with fine tarts made with buttery pastry and fresh fruit or decadently trickle a little on good quality ice cream.
