The Cabernet Codros Lavis is a product of meticulous selection, exemplifying the zonation project's philosophy that has guided the Cantina for over 30 years. This Cabernet Sauvignon originates from the highly suited lands between Lavis and Pressano, areas classic for this varietal. It boasts an intense ruby color, with a complex bouquet featuring balsamic and spice hints, notes of blueberries, mint, cardamom, and subtle vanilla touches. The palate is full and broad, with silky tannins beautifully harmonized with the fruit and a savory acidity, leading to a satisfying and prolonged finish. It is cultivated on the Pressano hillside, facing west-southwest at an elevation of 380 meters above sea level, in a soil composition that is sandy-clayey, drained, fertile, and deep. The vines are trained in the traditional Trentino pergola system, with a planting density of 5,000 vines per hectare. The vinification process involves manual harvesting around the second decade of October, controlled temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks, malolactic fermentation, and aging in French oak barriques for about 18 months before bottling, followed by at least 10 months of bottle aging. This wine is versatile in pairings, with a pronounced personality that stands out with grilled meat, roasts, and game.
Cantina Lavis is one of the most renowned cooperatives in Trentino and has its headquarters in the municipality of La-Vis where it was founded in 1948. Nowadays there are about 800 members contributing to about 750 hectares of vineyards with an altimetric layout that varies from 200mt to 800mt guaranteeing organoleptic richness and variety; the fine and elegant white vines are grown in the mountains, while the intense and structured reds are grown in the hills. The wines of the Cantina di Lavis and Valle di Cembra are a representation of the winemaking tradition that combines nature with technique in a mountain context that is unique in the world.
