Cavit Brusafer Pinot Nero

£23.20
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 Noir grapes are selected from hillside vineyards around Povo, in the Vallagarina Valley, and on the slopes of Mount Baldo. After being hand-harvested from the steep slopes, the must is fermented in contact with the skins for 10 days, and after alcoholic fermentation the wine is matured for 20 months in 225 litre French oak barriques. The wine spends around 10 months in bottle before release, to further soften and settle. Lifted aromas of ripe cherry, red berry and lightly spiced notes. The palate has raspberry and blackberry fruit, with herbal notes and fine tannins. Full and velvety balanced by fresh acidity and a long, delicate finish. Drink with red meats or poultry. Also a good match for pasta and risotto dishes.
