Mastri Vernacoli Trentino Pinot Bianco 2019, Cavit
Italy / Trentino
Andy's Tasting Notes
An elegant yet characterful white wine with hints of candied lemon and peach. Fresh and lively with a touch of hazelnut and a subtle creamy overtone on the finish.
The Pinot Bianco grapes are sourced from older vineyards on the higher slopes of the Adige and Laghi valleys, and the hills of Roverè della Luna. The wine undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation and maturation in stainless steel.
85% Pinot Bianco, 15% Chardonnay

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.
