This product is currently sold out.
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.
Bottega Vinai Trentino Merlot wine has a winning combination of ripe, opulent fruit, fresh Trentino acidity and classic Bordeaux cedarwood characters. An intense wine with berry, spice and cedarwood aromas. On the palate the wine is generous and ripe with flavours of plum, cherry and herbs. Richly-flavoured and spicy with bitter chocolate notes and refreshing acidity leading to a long, structured finish. Try with a hearty beef casserole.
