Tauleto is a dialect term applied by local farmers to a plot with abundant water resources. The springs running under the Sangiovese in the Tauleto vineyard contribute to minimizing water stress in the vines. The blend includes Uva Longanesi, an almost-forgotten native variety, which has been rediscovered and revived and produces wines with high tannins and a flavor profile of cherry and strawberry, with vanilla and licorice overtones. The average age of the vines is 20 years, producing a yield of 6.5 tonnes per hectare. The soil is rich in clay, which offers good water retention properties to nourish the vine during the warm, dry summers. Tauleto is Umberto Cesari's flagship wine and is only produced in the finest vintages.

For Umberto Cesari, producing good wine in Emilia Romagna was a family tradition. It is here that Umberto and his wife Giuliana started their company in 1965 when they bought 20 hectares of land in the hills. Their ambition was to turn Sangiovese into a great wine, reflecting the typicity of the area. The winery has continually expanded and today the estate extends over 355 hectares divided into distinct vineyards; La Casetta, Parolino, Cà Grande, Laurento, Liano, Claterna, Miravalle, and Tauleto each of which provides the perfect micro-climate for the vines planted. Their estate is sustainably cultivated and certified sustainable by SQNPI. As pioneers of quality, this family-run estate wins numerous accolades every year and has been awarded 'IWSC Italian Winemaker of the Year' four times in the last 15 years. The estate is now in the hands of Umberto’s son, Gianmaria Cesari, who follows in Umberto's footsteps.
