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.
Pinot Bianco, like Pinot Grigio, is a pale-skinned mutation of Pinot Noir. It produces some of the most interesting wines from Northern Italy, where it has been planted for over 200 years. It has a distinctive, refreshing style that sets it apart from the softer, more rounded Pinot Grigio.
Mastri Vernacoli Trentino Pinot Bianco wine has delicate aromas of citrus fruit and white flower. The palate is rounded and textural with good concentration of citrus and stone fruit characters. Good length and crisp acidity on the finish with minerality and depth. Lovely with spinach dumplings with melted butter, or mushroom quiche.
