Gloria, Graziella and Domenico Cescon radically renewed their family winery without losing touch with their roots. They have over 100 hectares of vineyard today, which they supplement with fruit bought in from a host of other local growers. The latter goes mainly to making their more straightforward wines, while the estate vineyards are the foundation for the more ambitious offerings, wines that are aromatic and with superb personalities. We have been expecting for years now the placing of the capstone in the Cescon enterprise, and here it is, in the appearance of a Manzoni Bianco that has no peer.
Madre 2014 embodies superb aromatic expression, with understated use of wood that heightens the effect of citrus and tropical fruit, while the near-endless progression in the mouth is emphatic yet majestic. Our tip? Pair it wih some pan-fried spicy chicken.
