A deliciously light and fruity Prosecco with hints of apple and peach on the nose and a fresh, softly sparkling palate with characters of soft ripe stone fruits.
Cavit is a modern and forward-thinking co-operative group in the mountainous Trentino region of northeast Italy whose 11 cellars are responsible for 60% of the region's wine production. The endless permutations offered from their members' 7,000 hectares of vineyard, combined with an intriguing palette of indigenous and international grape varieties, enable Cavit to offer a broad range which excels at every level. The scale of production, combined with ultra-modern winemaking facilities, understandably makes Cavit one of Italy's most reliable sources of well-made, competitively priced wines, in particular Pinot Grigio. However, with wines such as Arele Vino Santo, Graal Metodo Classico (awarded 'Tre Bicchieri' for the 10th consecutive year in 2013) and the outstanding Maso Cervara Teroldego, chief winemaker Anselmo Martini is producing wines which rival the best of the Trentino region.
In The Vineyard
Cavit's Lunetta Prosecco Spumante is made exclusively from Glera grapes cultivated in the Veneto region, in the hills north of Treviso, between the river Piave and the Prealps. The Glera grape flourishes in the fresh, loose hill soils in this area and the average yield is 90 hl/ha. The grapes are harvested by hand in mid September.
In The Winery
Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel. The second fermentation is carried out in tank (Charmat method).
Serve chilled as an aperitif or celebration wine. Also goes well with Italian panettone.
