Cantina Lavis

Cantina Lavis is an historical winery located at the heart of the Trentino subregion. Founded in 1850 by the Cembran family, it has been a cooperative since 1948.

The Ritratto is a bright and deep ruby red wine, with violet nuances. To the nose it is harmonic and rich: ripe red and black fruit, especially blackberry, raspberry and plum, followed by delicate notes of wilted violets, blend with recollections of coffee roasting and rich balsamic aromas. To the palate, it 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.
A perfect pairing with rich stuffed pastas, grilled meats and game specialties.
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. The blend is the synthesis which defines the character of the wine. Ageing in bottles develops soul. Time accompanies growth.
