I "Classici" of Cantina LaVis form a representative selection of typical Trentino wines, a true expression of the link between vineyard, terrain and people - a perfect synthesis of man and environment in a union of labour, passion and expertise. The “Quality Project” and “Zoning”, which guarantee “the right vine in the right place”, exploit the characteristics of the terrain to ensure that the right conditions for producing wines of unchallenged quality are present from the outset. Our growers cultivate the land and the vines in small individual plots. They know its history, needs and potential, enabling the vine to express its full potential. Traditional winemaking skills are then employed to create wines of rich and vibrant personalities, offering subtlety and elegance at a peak of perfection.

The Merlot grape, of French origin, has been grown in Trentino for many years with excellent results, especially in the foothill and valley vineyards. To express its full potential it needs a stony soil, loose and not particularly fertile, to encourage early ripening.
