Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
The grapes come from a careful selection of estate grown Albana grapes from
hillside plots of the Podere Colle del Re Estate. The average age of the vines is 15
years old and they yield approximately 10,000 kg per hectare. Careful canopy
management keeps the vines healthy and enables the clusters to reach optimum
maturity. The vines are gron in clay soils which help to retain moisture and cool the
vine in warmer climates.
Winemaking
The grapes were pneumatically soft pressed and the must fermented in temperature
controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine was left to rest in tank for three months prior
to being bottled.
Tasting Note
Dry and delicately scented, with a fruity and smooth texture. A refreshing white wine
with a distinctive underlying almond note and an elegant finish.
Serving Suggestion
At 10 to 12°C as an apéritif or to accompany typical Emilian pasta dishes such as
tortellini, fish in sauces or stuffed pastas, such as tortellini, agnolotti, and ravioli.
