Cesconi White Blend Vigneti Delle Dolomiti IGT Olivar 2009
The four Cesconi brothers have transformed their family estate in the past decade. 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. The brothers now have 20 hectares of vineyard in and around the village of Pressano situated at an altitude of 300-400 metres above sea level. Most of their vineyards are now trained to guyot, as opposed to the traditional pergola style in Trentino - Nosiola is the exception. In general, guyot gives lower yields and riper, more flavourful fruit that in turn results in wines of greater power and balance. The vineyards are west facing and situated at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. Red soil originated from sandstone of the Triassic period. The vines are pergola and guyot trained and planted with a spacing of 4.55m between rows, and 0.60m between vines and 1.80m x 0.80m. The yield is 7000 kg per hectare. The vines are 14 years old on average. This wine has great structure and balance. On the nose it is delicate and perfumed, with notes of summer fruit such as peach, figs and apricots, with flowery top notes and mineral undertones. On the palate it is full-bodied and spicy, with peach and apricot flavours underpinned by the same mineral quality on the nose, with a long finish.
