LaVis is a cooperative located in the city of Trento in the heart of Italy’s alpine Trentino region. It includes more than 800 growers who mainly farm their own small plots. All farming is done by hand in strict compliance with monitoring by Italy’s Integrated Crop Management National Quality System. Although some of them use modern trellis training for the vines, many of them still use the traditional pergola training system which naturally regulates the temperature of the plants and their canopy. Perhaps the most impressive thing about the LaVis cooperative is the winery’s vineyard zoning project which it completed and implemented more than 30 years ago. The concept is simple: grow the right grapes in the right place.
Intense ruby color with a garnet hue. Balsamic and floral on the nose with spice and wild blueberry aromas. In the mouth it is full-bodied with dark berry fruit notes, ripe tannins and a long fresh finish. Overall this Cabernet Sauvignon is fresh and vibrant with focused floral and fruit aromas that continue onto the palate. It will pair well with duck, red meat, grilled vegetables.
The grapes are hand harvested at the end of October. Fermentated in stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak barriques for approximately 18 months before bottling, and further ageing in the bottle for a minimum of 10 months.
