Cavit Bottega Vinai Pinot Nero

£15.19
Cavit is a leading co-operative in the mountainous Trentino region of northeast Italy. The winery was built in 1964, and 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. The Bottega Vinai range uses only grapes specially selected from the most suitable vineyard plots. This means that just the top 3% of vineyard area available to them is used to source grapes for the Bottega Vinai wines.... and these are labour-intensive wines!

The Pinot Nero grape is particularly suited to Trentino's cool and hilly sites, particularly the terraced vineyards which are situated on the Calavino hills (300-450m above sea level) where they benefit from excellent exposure. After a short period in stainless steel tanks, some of the wine is left to mature in a combination of barriques and larger casks for 10 - 12 months to add complexity. A delicate and approachable style of Pinot Noir with aromas of redcurrants and cherry, combined with spicy, savoury, gently toasty notes. Fresh and nuanced palate with subtle red berry characteristics, soft tannins, balanced acidity and a juicy red fruit finish. A good match with roast lamb, guinea fowl casserole or grilled white meats.
