Cavit Vigneti delle Dolomiti Red Alta Luna Phases 750ml

Cavit Vigneti delle Dolomiti Red Alta Luna Phases

90 Points Wine Spectator (Smart Buys): Base notes of chocolate and coffee liqueur enrich smoke, tea leaf, roasted plum and black currant candy flavors in this well-honed red, while a supple juiciness and a hint of dried mint linger on the finish. Teroldego, Lagrein and Merlot. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Alta Luna (“High Moon”) Phases represents the finest selection of grapes from prime vineyard sites in the foothills of Italy’s breathtaking Dolomite Alps. This elegant yet robust fusion of Merlot and native varieties Lagrein and Teroldego combines flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plum with distinctive spicy notes. Aged in oak barrels for 12 months, this vibrant red is smooth and beautifully balanced, with fine tannins and a lingering finish.

40% Teroldego, 30% Lagrein, 30% Merlot. Each variety is harvested by hand at optimal ripeness and undergoes separate fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Following a refinement period in stainless steel, the three lots are blended. The resulting wine is aged in small oak barrels for 12 months, then further refined in bottle before release.

I really enjoy blends and for a few years one of my favorites is Minage A Trois, a California blend. I was introduced to Alta Luna blend in early spring 2012 and has become my favorite. Just know this is an Italian blend and blends don't fall under DOCG so don't think it's low quality because you will not see that sticker. Purchased my first case from WC.
