For Umberto Cesari, producing good wine in Emilia Romagna is 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 100 hectares divided into distinct vineyards; La
Casetta, Parolino, Cà Grande and Laurento, each of which provides the perfect
micro-climate for the vines planted. As pioneers of quality in Emilia Romagna, Cesari
has gained international recognition and has been awarded 'IWSC Italian
Winemaker of the Year' four times in the last 15 years.
The average age of the vines is 15 years old and they yield 10,000kg per hectare.
Careful canopy management is undertaken to ensure the optimum amount of
sunlight and shade, encouraging the clusters to reach optimum maturity. The vines
are grown in clay rich and medium mixture soils.
The grape varieties were fermented separately. Fermentation took place in vertical
stainless steel temperature controlled tanks with a submerged cap. The wine was
aged for six months in Italian oak barrels, followed by a minimum of three months in
bottle prior to release.
Intense aromas of soft fruits and raspberries combine with fresh herbal notes. Smooth
and velvety on the palate with a lingering finish.
A great match for pasta dishes with tomato sauce and Provençal herbs, poultry, red
meats. This wine goes particularly well with barbecued meats.
