Cesconi

Trentino-Alto Adige, trentino alto adige Italy

The four Cesconi brothers have transformed their family estate in the village of Pressano into one of the region's most admired wineries. Whereas they previously sold all their fruit to the co-op at Lavis, today they are making some of Italy's most exciting white wines using organic farming. They have also researched and developed better selections of Nosiola, keeping them at the top of their game.

Stylistically, their whites are more intense and perfumed than most from Friuli, but without the weight or fat that some of the top Friuli wines have. Their reds, on the other hand, have more concentration than their Friulian counterparts.

The Pinot Grigio is aromatic yet intense. We tend to prefer it with a bit of bottle age, when it starts to show complexity. Their Nosiola, a native Trentino grape variety, is zesty and aromatic, an ideal summer white. 'Olivar', a barrel-fermented blend of Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay, is one of Trentino's best white wines. Their reds have improved markedly in recent years, with the addition of Lagrein and Teroldego to the blend. 'Moratèl', a blend of Merlot, Lagrein, Cabernet Sauvignon and Teroldego, shows a ripeness and depth of flavour that is lacking in most reds from this region.
