The four Cesconi brothers have transformed their family estate in the past decade. Whereas the family previously sold all their fruit to the co-op at Lavis, today they are making some of Italy’s most exciting wines.

 

The brothers now have 21 hectares of vineyard in and around the village of Pressano situated at an altitude of about 300 metres. All their vineyards are now managed organically. All of Cesconi’s white wines, and the Moratel, are now sealed under stelvin – yet another sign of this family’s forward looking vision.

 

A blend of  40% Merlot, 40% Lagrein, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon & 10% Teroldego.

 

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats with two weeks maceration. The wine was then transferred into 225 litre French oak barrels (of which 20-30% was new oak) for 10 months ageing.

 

Youthful violet notes shine through this ruby coloured wine. The nose offers considerable aromatic complexity, with aromas of wild cherry, raspberry and blackcurrant. The palate is supple and pleasing while presenting a firm tannic backbone typical to clay soils.
