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.
The Nosiola grape is only found in Trentino. The name is thought to come from 'nocciola' the Italian for hazelnut! It is traditionally used for Vino Santo (when semi-dried) but here makes an appealing, fresh and dry white.
Terrazze della Luna Trentino Nosiola wine has a ripe honeyed nose, lightly floral with pear and apple notes. Delicate and fresh on the palate with spicy green apple fruit balanced by zesty acidity. The textured and lightly nutty finish has a crisp green edge. This award-winning wine is just great with crisp salads and lightly spiced food. Try with mild Thai fish dishes.
