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.
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.
Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel. The second fermentation is carried out in tank (Charmat method), after which the wine is held on fine lees for 3 months before bottling.
Serve chilled as an aperitif or celebration wine.
