From the ultra-reliable Cavit in Italy's northern region of Trentino, this vibrant, youthful, aromatic red made from the local Teroldego grape smacks of juicy, fresh, dark cherry fruitiness with supple tannins and classic freshness in a primary Italy-meets-Beaujolais style for matching to cold roast meats and honey-glazed ham.
Anthony Rose - The Independent Magazine 12/01/2013
Of the 2010 vintage, Anthony Rose said: "Like an Italian Beaujolais thanks to its supple tannins and vibrant fruit quality, this red made from Trentino's teroldego grape is full of fruitiness underpinned by succulence."
Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 12/01/2013
Of the 2010 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "The Finest range can be hit-and-miss but this northern Italian red is a beauty and it's made from a grape I adore but very rarely see in the UK - teroldego. The summer pudding aromas and sleek palate are balanced by a tart, punchy finish that craves pasta dishes with cheesy or meaty sauces."

Of the 2010 vintage, Olly Smith said: “Sleek and juicy with tangy fruit, this light-bodied red is a cracker with tomato-based dishes and a good choice for the first barbeque of the year.”
A fairly vigorous indigenous variety present in Trentino since the 1300’s with large, trilobate leaves presenting sharp, irregular indentations. Bunches are pyramidal in shape, of medium compactness with average-sized, round, blue-black berries with fairly resistant bloom-covered skins and juicy pulp
On well-drained terraces in the River Adige and Vallagarina valleys, on a gravelly matrix of alluvial origins and at the foot of alluvial cones on limestone, medium-deep soils with plenty of skeleton.
