Bright and deep ruby red wine with violet nuances. Ripe red and black fruit, especially blackberry, raspberry and plum on the nose, followed by delicate notes of wilted violets and hints of roasted coffee. The palate has considerable substance and is distinguished by the mellowness and sweetness of the fruit, balanced and enveloping, intense with a pleasant and elegant tannic note, which guides the long finish.

Production Notes

The varieties from which it is made - Teroldego, Lagrein and Merlot – are grown in the best vineyards according to stringent agronomic protocols. In the winery, the grapes and then the wine are processed with loving care and attention using artisan methods. Ageing is in various kinds of containers, from small 225-liter casks to large wooden barrels, which enhance unique characteristics and often small and imperceptible nuances.

Producer Information

Cantina Lavis is an historical winery located at the heart of the Trentino subregion. Founded in 1850 by the Cembran family, who built the initial core of the current production unit. But it wasn’t until 1948 that 14 independent winemakers formed the co-operative – continuing to acquire new members and merge with other small co-operatives in the area, now with around 800 members with around 750 hectares of land under vine.

Cantina Lavis carried out a project in the mid-80s to ‘zone’ their different plots. By analysing the soils in their plots they’ve created a map to help work out which vines should grow where to get the best from them. And this definitely shows in the consistently high quality their wines achieve.
