Cesconi in Vinous

Azienda Agricola Cesconi, located in Trentino, Italy, has just received new reviews for their lineup of wines in Vinous. Ian d'Agata praises the certified organic winery as "the master of the Nosiola variety in the area." Nearly all the wines got outstanding scores, an impressive feat for a small, family-run winery.

Perched high above Trento on banks of the Adige River is the hill of Pressano. In these rugged Alpine surroundings, the Cesconi family tends their vineyards planted to both red and white grapes. The current proprietors can trace their family roots back to the 17th century, and building on more than two centuries of cultivating and producing wine in Trentino, the four Cesconi brothers - Lorenzo, Roberto, Alexander and Franco - as well as their father Paul, continue the family tradition. The family has a deep appreciation and respect for the achievements of their ancestors, however, they seek to build on this history by perfecting the traditional practices of the Domaine. To that end, the brothers work entirely organically in the vineyards and continue to move towards biodynamic methods. It’s hard not to admire the humble ambitions of these soft spoken farmers to make what Lorenzo refers to as “tasty wine” - if only more wines were produced with such a concise vision.
