DE VESCOVI ULZBACH
In a sonnet as well as in an octave there are the roots, the culture, the love for the life of those who did it, combined with the genius loci and modern communication. This is also true for wine: it takes a suitable land and a suitable climate (that is, talent), but it also requires wisdom, taste, and measurement (ie art). The earth and the climate are given, art pursues itself by studying, learning, searching, meditating, trying. The Family de Vescovi has been cultivating the vine in Mezzocorona for over 300 years. In the second half of the seventeenth century Vigilio de Vescovi (the theologian and bursar of the Prince Bishop of Trento, Dean of Atesino, apostolic protonotary and delegate to the Diet of Innsbruck for the Prince himself) to move his family from Vermiglio to Mezzocorona, so he started a new life and family history. The Piana Rotaliana was already the cradle of a flourishing agriculture and was known as Teroldego, since the time of the Council. Thus the de Vescovi began to produce grapes and wines. In the coats of arms of the de Vescovi family, the ecclesiastical descendance is evident. A few years ago, Giulio de Vescovi - freshly graduated in Viticulture and Enology at the University of Florence - decided to give substance to his dream: to create a great wine. Since he was a child he has dreamed of this project until he has had work experience in Italy and abroad, harvests and trial vinifications. In 2003 the first "real" vinification and in October 2005 the presentation of the label and the marketing. The vineyards located in the heart of the production area of Teroldego Rotaliano are partly reared in pergola and partly in espaliers: here too tradition and innovation. The de Vescovi know these lands palm to palm forever, know how much and what can give each row of their farms: Rauti-Camorzi, Fron and Broilo. In the old seventeenth-century house on the ground floor and in the basement there is the cellar, renovated and renovated maintaining the atmosphere of a time full of details. They are beautiful rooms that have been restored with a light touch, modernized just enough to make them functional to the new production that is and will remain a niche production anyway. The impression of being in the family cellar is very present and contributes to create a highly personalized and charming atmosphere. The rooms where the barriques rest seem to have been created ad hoc: very low light, right temperature, right degree and constant humidity, just breath.
