Cenci

In Castelnuovo (TN), in the picturesque setting of Valsugana, Silvia and Valentino Cenci have brought their winery to life driven by their passion for Trentodoc. In 2016, they decided to dedicate all their energies to the production of Metodo Classico sparkling wine, founding Cantina Cenci.

They cultivate a vineyard of just 5 hectares, characterized by a cool climate and marked temperature variation, at the foot of the majestic Lagorai mountain range.

Cenci

Becoming winemakers is a significant turning point for Valentino and Silvia, who have left their previous jobs to devote themselves entirely to the care of the family vineyards and the production of high-quality wine.

The Bassa Valsugana, framed by the alpine lakes of Levico and Caldonazzo and enriched by imposing fortresses such as Castel Pergine, Castel Telvana, and Castel Ivano, offers an extraordinary natural environment for the vines. The magnificent Lagorai mountain range completes the picture, giving the region a cool climate and significant temperature variation, optimal conditions for cultivating grapes destined for the production of quality sparkling wine.

Trentino Alto Adige

Trentino Alto Adige is a region entirely mountainous and divided into the autonomous provinces of Trento and Bolzano, whose border marks a linguistic and administrative watershed.

The attention of wineries and heroic viticulture ensures a consistently high quality level of wines, and particularly the best results are achieved with grapes that thrive in cold climates, such as Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, which here express their varietal characteristics at their best. In addition to the many international varieties, the region also boasts an interesting heritage of native grapes, including Teroldego, Schiava, and Lagrein.

Although it would be difficult to draw a morphological boundary between the two areas geographically, ethnic and linguistic differences on one hand and pedoclimatic differences on the other have also led, over the centuries, to a provincial characterization of wine production.

Both areas, however, share an excellent wine production, thanks also to the geographic position and favorable climatic conditions along the Adige Valley and on the slopes of the mountains that line it, as well as in the flat and hilly areas around Trento and Bolzano.

Trento

The Trento area, in addition to its Trento DOC sparkling wines, is famous for its elegant white wines, typical of grape cultivation in high-altitude terrain.

This territory is distinguished by elegant wines that express a unique concept of territoriality. The success and peculiarity of Trento DOC sparkling wine are due precisely to the characteristics of the territory: the combination of climate, different altitudes, terrain, and Trentino know-how make it not just a simple sparkling wine, but a highly esteemed mountain sparkling wine, increasingly recognized and awarded.

Despite its small size, the Trentino region is covered with 10,000 hectares of vineyards, with a percentage of grapes destined for sparkling wine production accounting for 8% and an annual production of 7 million bottles.

The vineyards benefit from different climates: from a mountain microclimate to the milder one of Lake Garda. Factors such as vineyard altitude and temperature variation play an important role in grape ripening, influencing the organoleptic characteristics of the wines.

The varieties cultivated for Trento DOC sparkling wine are Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The area of organic vineyards in Trentino is steadily increasing, a natural consequence of the attention and responsibility of sparkling wine producers towards product healthiness.

Trentino, the homeland of Trento DOC bubbles, offers elegant and unique white wines, the result of cultivation in high-altitude areas and Trentino know-how, expressing the richness of the territory in every sip.
