Nosiola Vineyards of the Dolomites IGT Cesconi
Nosiola is the only native white variety of Trentino, present since the times of the Council of Trento. The origin of the name has not yet been clarified. Many argue that it derives its name from hazelnut, due to the color of the grapes when they are ripe, others that it is precisely the aroma of the wines that recalls that of wild hazelnuts.
What we do know is that it is a versatile variety, which like few others in the world manages to produce both great sweet wines and still whites, with a savory character that can age for many decades.
Once widespread throughout the province, Nosiola was mainly cultivated on the Pressano hill and in the Valle dei Laghi.
In recent times, the variety has undergone a major downsizing in favor of international varieties, so much so that it has become almost “rare”. Today it covers a cultivated area of only 65 ha. As winemakers, linked to our territory and our traditions, we are happy to contribute to its preservation.
