Cavit is a leading co-operative in the mountainous Trentino region of northeast Italy. The winery began as a consortium of associated grape growers in 1950, with a dedicated winery at Ravina di Trento built in 1964. Today it unites 11 separate cellars and their combined 5,250 grape growers across 6,350 hectares of vineyard
The Glera grape variety pre-dates Roman times. The grapes for Lunetta are sourced from the hills above Treviso, a traditional growing area for Prosecco. Hillsides with cool, loose soils are favourable. The grapes are harvested by hand in the second half of September. The must from the first soft pressing of the grapes is used - left for 10-12 hours for any sediment to settle. It then ferments in stainless steel for around 10 days. The second fermentation takes place by the Charmat method.
