Arèle Vino Santo (6 Bottle Case)
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. Their site at Maso Toresella on the shores of Lake Toblino was the historic residence of the Prince Bishops of Trento, surrounded by 6.5 hectares of vineyard. It is one of the most significant 'masi' (rural estates) in the whole of Trentino.
Arèle Vino Santo wine is a delicious and renowned regional dessert wine produced from naturally raisined grapes. Although often associated with Tuscany, Vino Santo also boasts a long tradition in Trentino, where production started over 200 years ago. 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. Superb with fine tarts made with buttery pastry and fresh fruit or decadently trickle a little on good quality ice cream.
