What is the Tralcetto?
The Tralcetto is the piece of vine located on the neck of Italo Cescon bottles. This vine signifies where the wine came from and the hard work that was involved in making the wine. The unique tralcetto gives the bottle a beautiful appearance. On the label of Italo Cescon bottles, there is a story that explain how the Tralcetto was founded.

Tralcetto Story:
"The idea of the "tralcetto" was born on a winter’s day of rest and meditation for the men working in the vineyard. While collecting the vines that had been pruned, grandmother Anna saved a small piece of vine and placed it in her apron pocket. When she returned home, she was assisted by her son Italo, who was a wine grower, to tie the piece of vine (tralcetto) with a string at the neck of a wine bottle. Doing this symbolized that the wine had been grown from that vine, and that it had been produced through the hard work of grandmother Anna’s hands. From that moment on, in 1957, the story of the “tralcetto” began and still identifies today Italo Cescon’s classic production of genuineness, representing the wine and the simple way to preserve it."
