Bottega Vinai Trentino Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Cavit
Italy / Trentino
Andy's Tasting Notes
This is a restrained and refined style of Sauvignon Blanc with the emphasis on subtle herbaceous, grassy and herby elements. The fruit character leans towards citrus and ripe apple with a pleasing floral overtone. A style all of its own, but not too over the top nor too lean.
Worth a try if you find many new world examples a little too fruity.

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. Trentino has a much higher proportion of wines produced as DOC than any other region in Italy – an average of 80% of the region’s wines have a DOC classification, compared to around 30% elsewhere in the country. Remarkably, Cavit accounts for 60% of this region’s wine production and they advise and supervise all aspects of this production from the vineyard to the bottle.
