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 20 years, producing a yield of 6.5 tonnes per hectare. The soil is rich in clay.
The grapes were harvested by hand and left to dry for two weeks prior to pressing. Maceration lasted 30 days at temperatures less than 30°C in Slavonian oak vats. The wine was aged for 24 months in Allier oak barriques and tonneaux of 225 and 500 litres, followed by a further six months in bottle prior to release.
Savoury flavours of dark cherries and black stone fruits combine with notes of dried herbs, smoky oak, with a hint of coffee and vanilla in the background. A rounded, full-bodied red wine with a spicy, persistent and lingering aftertaste.
Try with braised and grilled red meats or spicy pasta dishes.
