Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe, plummy fruit with a hint of spice. Medium-bodied with soft juicy berry fruit and good richness balanced by fresh acidity, lightly herbal notes and easy supple tannins.

Producer details

Cavit is a modern and forward-thinking co-operative group in the mountainous Trentino region of northeast Italy whose 11 cellars are responsible for 60% of the region's wine production. The endless permutations offered from their members' 7,000 hectares of vineyard, combined with an intriguing palette of indigenous and international grape varieties, enable Cavit to offer a broad range which excels at every level. The scale of production, combined with ultra-modern winemaking facilities, understandably makes Cavit one of Italy's most reliable sources of well-made, competitively priced wines, in particular Pinot Grigio. However, with wines such as Arele Vino Santo, Graal Metodo Classico (awarded 'Tre Bicchieri' for the 10th consecutive year in 2013) and the outstanding Maso Cervara Teroldego, chief winemaker Anselmo Martini is producing wines which are among the best of the Trentino region.

In the vineyard

Sanvigilio Merlot is produced in the hilly areas of the Vallagarina valleys. The vine training methods used are Cordon Spur and Guyot in the Veneto; Pergola trentina and Guyot in Trentino.

In the winery

The grapes are harvested when they are fully ripe towards the end of September. Fermentation takes place at a temperature of 26 - 28 degrees C in small stainless steel tanks.

Food Recommendations

Great with a plate of meat antipasti, pizza or pasta.
